Islamabad (July 26, 2017): Former chairman of Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP) Zafar Hijazi was handed over to Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) on physical remand for three days.
According to the details, the sessions court on Wednesday granted a three-day physical remand of Zafar Hijazi, the former chairman of Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP), to the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA).
On Wednesday, Hijazi was produced before a Senior Civil Judge after his four days physical remand ended in Chaudhry Sugar Mill record tempering case.
The FIA investigators sought his further remand to complete investigation from him regarding the tempering of the record.The judge handed him over to FIA till July 29.
Hijazi was arrested last week after an FIR was registered against him on the directive of Supreme Court for tempering record of Chaudhry Sugar Mill for the Sharif family and his bail-before-arrest plea was dismissed by a local court.Following his arrest last week, he fell ill and was rushed to Pakistan Institute of Medical Science and remained there for three days.
Yesterday, he was shifted from the hospital to FIA custody.
On July 22, Hijazi was taken to a hospital from the court in an ambulance when he was handed over to the FIA on a four-day remand. On that occasion, Nafees had presented the same argument along with a medical report prepared by the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS).
After reviewing PIMS’ report, the judge had granted FIA a four-day remand.
Hijazi was taken into FIA custody earlier this month after a report released by the joint investigation team, probing Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his family’s wealth, alleged that the former SECP chairman had altered records related to Chaudhry Sugar Mills.
