A local court on Sunday granted five-day physical remand of PTI leader Azam Swati in controversial tweets case.
The police produced Swati before a judicial magistrate Kachlak for seeking 10-day remand for interrogation.
However, the magistrate approved five-day physical remand.
On Dec 2, the Quetta police arrested PTI leader Azam Swati in a separate case registered against him in Balochistan for his controversial speech at the party’s Rawalpindi showdown.
The police team has taken the outspoken PTI leader to Balochistan for interrogation in the case.
The development comes a day after the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) got a 14-day judicial remand from a district and sessions court in the controversial tweets case.
In its plea, the FIA told the court that it had completed the investigation and that there was no need for further investigation.
The FIA had taken the PTI leader into custody from his farmhouse located in Chak Shahzad, a suburb situated in Islamabad after his party staged a power-show in the neighbouring city of Rawalpindi.

The FIA has registered a first information report (FIR) on the complaint of the state through Islamabad Cyber Crime Reporting Centre (CCRC) Technical Assistant Aneesur Rehman.
