MNA Mohsin Dawar has been shifted to the Peshawar Central Jail. He was arrested on May 30 in North Waziristan after what is being described as a skirmish between PTM supporters and the army. Judge Inam Ullah rejected the Counter-Terrorism Department’s appeal for an extension in his remand due to security reasons. Advocate Shah Qayaz Bacha said they will submit a petition for Dawar's bail to the Peshawar High Court.
