Dr Shehla, who is a doctor in the US and had recently returned to Pakistan, was stopped by police officials as the number plate on her vehicle was missing.
She repeatedly asked the police to provide a “genuine reason” as to why she had been stopped, and even pressured the police officers to permit the vehicle to enter the Diplomatic Enclave, a highly sensitive and secure location in Islamabad, where government buildings, foreign missions and offices are located.
An FIR was registered on behalf of Assistant Sub-Inspector Police Tahir Farooq in the Secretariat Police Station, however, she had been let go at the time due to the absence of a woman police officer.
On Saturday, Islamabad police had arrested Dr Sethi, a US-based doctor who had recently returned to Pakistan.
A judicial magistrate on Sunday sent Sethi to jail on judicial remand, rejecting her lawyer's plea for bail.
