The joint investigation team presented Qadri before the court under strict security.
Due to security risks, Rawalpindi’s ATC was shifted to Islamabad for Thursday’s proceeding regarding Taseer’s assassination.
Earlier on Wednesday, Mumtaz Qadri, who was part of Taseer’s security detail, was presented before a magistrate in Islamabad.
Police on Wednesday charged Qadri with murder and terrorism over Taseer’s killing.
“Police have charged Qadri with murder, terrorism and violence,” a lawyer, Farooq Sulehria said.
Also on Wednesday, Islamabad Chief Commissioner Tariq Mehmud Pirzada constituted a joint team to investigate the assassination.
