The court was hearing a plea filed by Swati’s son to drop the cases against his father.
Five FIRs were registered in Balochistan against Swati for his controversial tweets against senior military officers.
The Balochistan police had arrested him from Islamabad and brought him to Quetta.
On December 6, the Balochistan High Court had ordered the provincial police not to register any more cases against PTI Senator Azam Swati who was brought here from a hospital in Islamabad in a one of several cases registered here.
A Quetta’s district court remanded the senator in police custody for five days on Sunday, a week after the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) arrested him in Islamabad in a case pertaining to controversial tweets against the military.
The senator was shifted to Quetta aboard a special flight amid tight security on Friday after the judicial magistrate of Islamabad handed him over to the Balochistan police.
Hours earlier in Karachi, the Sindh High Court too ordered the provincial police chief and other relevant parties to submit a detailed report about a number of cases and their nature registered against Azam Swati across the province.Complex interdependence theory
