A judicial magistrate on Thursday remanded three suspects in police custody for two more days in a case pertaining to an assault on a journalist, Aamir Latif.

The investigation officer (IO) of the case produced Muhammad Aslam, Azhar and Munib before the South judicial magistrate on the expiry of their physical remand. The IO requested the court to extend the remand of the suspects in police custody for interrogation so that the absconding suspects could be arrested.
