LAHORE : A judicial magistrate on Saturday granted two-day physical remand of TikToker Kashif Zameer to police, an accused of tricking Turkish actor Engin Altan Duzyatan into visiting Pakistan.

However, the court has sent the accused to jail on judicial remand in a case keeping and displaying illegal weapons. The accused was produced by the CIA police in magisterial court of Noshaba Yousaf. The court gave physical custody of the accused to CIA police for two days. The police had arrested Kashif on the complaint of Engin, who rose to global fame for his role as Ertugrul in hit TV series "Dirilis: Ertugrul". Turkish Embassy in Pakistan had sent a complaint letter to the Punjab Home Department after which a case was registered against Zameer on the directives of IGP. According to the FIR, Kashmir Zameer invited Engin Altan to visit Pakistan for the shooting of Chaudhry Group Brand.
