A magisterial court in Lahore on Tuesday rejected the request by the anti-corruption authorities to grant Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) President Chaudhry Pervez Elahi’s physical remand.

Instead, the former Punjab chief minister has been placed on judicial remand in connection with two cases, involving allegations related to the appointment of a lower-scale officer as his principal secretary and illegal recruitments within the Punjab Assembly.

Elahi was brought to court under tight security by the anti-corruption police, who were seeking his physical remand to facilitate further investigation into the matter.

After considering arguments from both sides, Judicial Magistrate Imran Abid initially reserved his decision. Subsequently, he rejected the anti-corruption agency’s request for physical remand in the two cases and ordered that Chaudhry Pervez Elahi be placed on judicial remand.
