Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) President Parvez Elahi Monday found himself embroiled in yet another case, as he will now be headed to Lahore with the Punjab’s Anti-Corruption Establishment (ACE) following an approval of their request seeking his transitory remand.

After an anti-terrorism court (ATC) ordered to send him to jail on judicial remand in the case pertaining to the attack on the Federal Judicial Complex (FJC), the Punjab ACE stepped in seeking the senior politician’s remand in a new case filed in Lahore for misusing his power and position to shuffle provincial bureaucracy.

According to a first information report (FIR), Elahi has been booked under section 5/2(d)47 of the Prevention of Corruption Act (PCA) for illicitly misusing his position and power as the then-chief minister of Punjab and transferring Muhammad Khan Bhatti, an employ in a special department of the Punjab Assembly, to a principal secretary.

ATC judge Abul Hasnat Zulqarnain approved the Punjab ACE request to issue Elahi’s one-day transitory remand after reserving its verdict in the wake of arguments presented by the anti-graft department.

“Can’t the chief minister appoint his own chief secretary? He has the authority to appoint his own staff,” Elahi’s lawyer Sardar Abdul Razzaq said during his arguments, revealing that the case against the politico was filed a day earlier.
