ATC sent AJK poet Ahmed Farhad to Rarrah Jail jail on judicial remand

An anti-terrorism court (ATC) sent AJK poet and journalist Ahmed Farhad Shah on a 14-day judicial remand to Rarrah Jail, Muzaffarabad. Muzaffarab is the capital of Azad Kashmir in Pakistan.

The case of Ahmed Farhad has become famous among the public due to his alleged disappearance by Pakistani security agencies. There are accusations that agencies kidnapped him from his home in Islamabad on May 15, 2024.

He disappeared for two weeks. There was no clue about his existence. There was no official case against him in any police station. However, he appeared out of nowhere on May 29, 3034, in the hands of Gujjar Kohala Police in Azad Kashmir.

Regarding a recent development in this case, AJK police presented him before ATC today after his judicial remand’s completion at Gujjar Kohala police station. His imprisonment comes as part of allegations against him to instigate protests.

Following these allegations, the ATC judge sent AJK poet Ahmed Farhad on a 14-day judicial remand. However, the ATC judge ordered the police to present the poet before the court once more on June 24, 2024.
