ISLAMABAD: On Sunday,a judicial magistrate ordered Dr Shehla Shakeel Sethi be sent to jail on judicial remand for hurling threats to police personnel for not allowing her into the diplomatic enclave.
Dr Shehla Sethi appeared before the magistrate earlier today, who rejected her lawyer’s plea for bail and sent her on a 14-day judicial remand.
Her lawyer had argued that the clauses mentioned in the first information remand (FIR) were bailable.
“My client is a heart patient and under pressure, her mental health can be affected,” he said, adding that “police officers instead of helping out, pressurized her.”
However, the court rejected her counsel’s arguments.
“If the medical test confirms your client is healthy she will be sent to jail,” the judge remarked.
He added, “If the doctor recommends otherwise after the medical test, then you can admit her into a hospital.”
