An anti-terrorism court (ATC) in Lahore on Monday granted police five-day physical remand of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) MPA-elect Nadeem Abbas Bara and others involved in alleged aerial firing and torture of policemen.

Abbas would be able to take oath under the Provincial Assembly of the Punjab Privileges (amendment) Act 2012 whereby an investigation team is liable to bring him to the assembly.

Abbas, who won election in PP-161 constituency on PTI ticket, surrendered himself in after the Supreme Court ordered his arrest over aerial firing and torture of policemen.

The CJP took suo motu notice of the physical assault of police officers in Lahore's Hanjarwal area on Saturday night by Abbas and his aides.

He ordered to arrest the culprits within twenty four hours and put the name of accused on exit control list (ECL). The Chief Justice ordered to include anti-terrorism clauses in the case.

Justice Nisar further directed Inspector General (IG) Punjab Kaleem Imam and other officers to appear before the top court on Tuesday.

Late Saturday night, according to Superintendent of Police (SP) Maaz Zafar, security officers led by SHO Rana Afzal were dispatched to Abbas's residence after reports of aerial firing were received.

"Upon reaching the scene, the SHO and his men were physically assaulted by MPA-elect Nadeem Abbas, who, along with his aides, tore their uniforms and fled the scene right after," he added.

The wounded personnel were shifted to Jinnah Hospital for treatment, the SP informed.

A case was later registered against 49 suspects, including Nadeem Bara and Muneer Bara.

The suspects have been booked for attempted murder and charged under the Terrorism Act.
