Member of National Assembly (MNA) and senior leader of Pashtun Tahaffuz Movement (PTM) Mohsin Dawar was arrested from North Waziristan tribal district and presented before an anti-terrorism court on Thursday (May 30). The PTM leader was presented in the ATC in Bannu where he was remanded into the custody of the Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) of police for eight days.
“Accused is remanded to police for eight (08) days subject to pre and post medical checkup. Accused be re-produced before the court on dated 07/06/2019 (June 7),” read an order handed down by ATC Special Judge Babar Ali Khan.
“I present myself before any court of law in Pakistan for accountability, but [the military] should be presented as well,” Dawar said in a video message released before his surrender. “We want an investigation of this incident in whatever court they are ready to accept.”
The PTM leader was at large following an attack on a security check post in North Waziristan tribal district on Sunday morning. The MNA, along with eight others, was nominated in the FIR of the attack. Three people were killed and five soldiers injured in the clash between security forces and PTM protesters.
