KARACHI: A local court has sent a Sar-e-Aam team member, Kamran Farooqui, on judicial remand to jail on Tuesday, for his sting operation in Sindh Assembly to expose flawed security of the assembly.

He was arrested from the provincial assembly along Sar-e-Aam anchorperson Iqrar-ul-Hassan. Kamran took a pistol with him into the assembly session, which was being attended by a large number of senior legislators of Sindh, to expose loopholes in the security system.

Iqrar said police had requested Kamran’s remand from the court which was turned down and he was sent to judicial custody, which is their lawyar’s success.

Hasan, the host of popular program Sar-e-Aam, had also been arrested on orders of Sindh Home Minister Sohail Anwar Siyal for highlighting poor security at the assembly, but was released on bail after a day.

The program anchor had entered the assembly premises with one of the crew members carrying a firearm, without any checking by the security deployed at the building.

During the session, Iqrar asked his crew member to unveil the pistol and showed it to Speaker Agha Siraj Durrani, thus stirring up a debate in the House on the security issue.
