PESHAWAR: An anti-terrorism court on Wednesday handed over a suspect to the Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) for two days on the terror financing charge.

The anti-terrorism court judge gave custody of the suspect Shah Room, a resident of Hakimabad, Nowshera, to CTD. He was arrested by police for his alleged involvement in the collection of foreign funds in the name of welfare organisation for terror financing. The CTD officials produced the accused in the court and sought his physical remand for further interrogation in the case.

According to the first information report (FIR), reports had been received that Ali Nawaz along with Muhammad Farooq, Shah Room and Muhammad Naeem were involved in providing finances to terrorists.
