Islamabad court jails former minister Fawad Chaudhry on fraud case.
According to his wife, Fawad, the former federal minister who abruptly quit from PTI due to the violence on May 9, was taken into custody from his Islamabad residence.
The court denied the police’s request to extend the PTI leader’s physical remand so they could conduct additional investigation during today’s hearing. The court then placed him in jail on judicial remand.
According to news today headlines on November 4, Zaheer Ahmed filed a fraud FIR against Fawad Chaudhry, the former leader of the Pakistan Teachers’ Association.
According to the FIR, Zaheer Ahmed handed Fawad Chaudhry Rs 50 million. When Zaheer asked for the money back, Fawad allegedly offered him two government jobs in exchange. Later, Fawad threatened Zaheer Ahmed with his two-armed guards.
