LAHORE: An anti-terrorism court on Monday granted a one-day transit remand of Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf’s former MNA Aliya Hamza Malik and social media activist Sanam Javed to Mianwali police for their alleged involvement in a May 9 case.

The police arrested the women in Kot Lakhpat jail and presented them before the court for the transit remand.

An investigating officer told the court that the suspects were required to be shifted to Mianwali for investigation in a case of torching Kamar Mashani police station during the protests on May 9, 2023.

Judge Arshad Javed allowed the police one-day transit remand of the suspects with a direction to produce them before a relevant court in Mianwali for further custody.

Both women were supposed to be released from jail after the judge granted them post-arrest bail in the Shadman police station attack.

However, they were rearrested in a new case registered in Mianwali district before their release from jail.

Ms Malik and Ms Javed, who are in jail for nine months, have been granted bail in several cases, including attack on the Jinnah House.
