Quetta (Web Desk): A judicial magistrate on Thursday granted Quetta police 10-day physical remand of Balochistan Communication and Works Minister Sardar Abdul Rehman Khetran.
According to details, the minister was presented in court of Judicial Magistrate Samina Nasree amid tight security.
During the hearing, police requested the judicial magistrate to grant 10-day physical remand of the minister, which was subsequently accepted.
Sardar Abdul Rehman Khetran was arrested a day earlier on charges of killing three persons in Barkhan.
It is pertinent to mention that bullet-riddled bodies of a woman and her two sons were found from a well near the minister’s residence in the Barkhan area late on Monday night.
Khan Muhammad Marri, a citizen, had alleged that the bodies were of his wife and two sons. He had also claimed that his wife and sons were being held in Khetran’s private jail, adding that five more of his children, including his 13-year-old daughter, were still languishing there.
The statment by Khan Muhammad came after the Levies Force "recovered" his wife, Giran Naz, who had been presumed dead, and their five children including a girl, allegedly abducted by Khetran.
The operation was conducted in light of Khan Muhammad's allegations that sparked protests across Balochistan for the recovery of missing persons.
