Lahore (Web Desk): The Anti-Corruption Establishment (ACE) on Friday presented Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) president and former Punjab chief minister Parvez Elahi before a Lahore court.

Judicial Magistrate Ghulam Murtaza heard the PTI president's case, where the ACE requested the court for his 14-day physical remand. 

The government counsel told the court that an investigation was yet to be conducted.

Parvez Elahi was arrested from outside his Zahoor Elahi residence in Lahore on Friday in a graft case for allegedly misusing his authority and corruption in development projects.

On May 26, a district court in Lahore had issued a non-bailable arrest warrant for Elahi in a case of embezzlement of development funds.

Earlier, a special judge of the anti-corruption court in Lahore issued non-bailable arrest warrants for the PTI leader ordering authorities to produce him by June 2.

Two arrest warrants have been issued for the PTI leader. The first one was issued on May 25 after the cancellation of bail while the second one on May 26.

An anti-corruption team earlier had also reached his residence for arrest. However, he could not be arrested.

In April, the ACE Gujranwala filed a case against Parvez Elahi citing a report based on sources, in which the former Punjab CM was accused of taking a Rs2 billion bribe for the contract of a development scheme.

Meanwhile, in another case was also registered against Elahi for allegedly taking a bribe of Rs120 million from an international organisation.
