FIA gets remand of ‘Daesh man’ for seven more days
Karachi: A Judicial Magistrate on Thursday extended the Federal Investigation Agency’s (FIA) remand of a suspect allegedly belonged to the Daesh in a case pertaining to use of social media for promoting their agenda.
The FIA produced Khalil-ur-Rehman before the Judicial Magistrate South after the expiry of his seven-day physical remand and requested for extension in remand.
The Investigating Officer (IO) told the magistrate that Khalil-ur-Rehman has confessed that Daesh had a network in Sindh and his other accomplices were also involved in promoting its agenda. The IO requested the magistrate to extend the physical remand of the suspect as his custody was further required to trace out the whereabouts of his absconding accomplices.
While accepting the FIA’s request, the magistrate allowed the investigators to keep the accused for seven more days for interrogation.
Earlier, the FIA counsel had submitted that the suspect was arrested by its counter terrorism wing shortly after he arrived at Karachi Cantt Station on September 28 from interior Sindh.
