On Monday, a local court granted the police"s request to extend PTI leader Shahbaz Gill"s physical remand for two more days.
Additional Meetings Judge Zeba Chaudhry issued the reserved verdict, and Gill was turned over to police for two days of physical remand.
The investigation officer had earlier presented the record to Additional Sessions Judge Zeba Chaudhry, who was presiding over the hearing today.
The court reserved its ruling on the appeal after the defense and prosecution concluded their arguments.
Fawad wants a judicial investigation
Speaking to the media outside the courtroom, PTI leader and former information minister Fawad Chaudhry demanded a judicial investigation into Gill"s alleged torture while in police custody.
Fawad stated that an independent judicial board should be created and maintained that the IHC should have established the board; however, the high court remanded the case to the district court.
He also claimed that Gill"s treatment was part of a "regime change operation against Pakistan."
Fawad urged the government to "realise the gravity of the situation," saying that politics could only take place if the country remained intact.
The judgement in the case will be announced today at 3 p.m. by the additional sessions judge.
The prosecution"s physical remand petition of Gill was heard by the judicial magistrate again on Tuesday, and the IHC ruled on the subject.
IHC Acting Chief Justice Amir Farooq ruled that the review appeal filed by Advocate General Islamabad Jahangir Jadoon was maintainable at the hearing on Tuesday. He then requested that the judicial magistrate rehear the case and make a merit-based decision.
On the AGI"s plea, the IHC had earlier in the day delayed judgement. Later, it granted the AGI"s motion after they had argued that the PTI leader"s physical detention was necessary to gather more evidence, including his phone and the identities of those responsible for the crime.
A video of Gill"s divisive statements went viral on social media last week, leading to his detention at Bani Gala Chowk in Islamabad. He was then arrested on suspicion of stirring up a revolt in the military.
