An Islamabad court on Wednesday approved the transit remand of Awami Muslim League (AML) chief Sheikh Rashid.
Following the court order, the Murree police took him into custody.
The court ordered the police to produce the AML chief on Thursday at 2 pm.
Rashid was arrested on the charges of blaming the former president and Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari for hatching a murder plan of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan.
Later, another case was also registered against him by Murree police for manhandling a police official at the time of his arrest.
Talking informally to the media after the hearing, the former minister asserted that attempts were being made to alter his allegiances, but he will not comply, even if it costs him his life.
