Gilgit, September 8: Chief Organizer of Progressive Youth Front (PYF), Baba Jan, presented himself for arrest today before the anti-terrorism court in Gilgit. He had been missing since the August 11 riots in Aliabad, erupted after the heinous murder of two IDPs at the hands of police.

After listening to arguments of the Defence and State Counsel, the Judge sent Baba Jan to jail on judicial remand, rejecting the state counsel’s request for physical remand of the PYF leader.
