A judicial magistrate in Multan on Wednesday sent cleric Mufti Abdul Qavi to jail on judicial remand in connection with the Qandeel Baloch murder case.
During today’s hearing of the case in the court of Judicial Magistrate Pervaiz Khan, the judge agreed to send Mufti Qavi to jail on judicial remand as his two-day physical remand expired today.
The police informed the court that they had completed their investigation and did not need to question the cleric any further.
The Investigation Officer was ordered to submit further details of the case to the court in the next hearing of the case on Nov 7.
During the last hearing of the case, Qavi maintained that he had not done anything wrong or illegal, whereas Qandeel’s father Muhammad Azeem told the magistrate that his daughter had been murdered at the behest of the cleric.
