5 days physical remand of journalist Asad Ali Toor granted to FIA. His attorneys have been allowed to meet him for one hour at FIA cyber crime center G-13 Islamabad.

FIA asked Judge to recover cell phone of Asad Ali Toor

Asad Toor told the judge that I can’t give it to FIA. I’m a journalist I don’t wanna give it. Material they want to recover already on social media they don’t need my devices. Sources are precious for a journalist. This is frivolous case. I appeared twice in good faith And they arrested me. If speaking truth Infront of powerful, then I’ll keep commiting this crime. I’ve lost my jobs, I was attacked and now they’ve arrested me. This is a medal for me. I don’t have any grievance against FIA they’re just doing their job. I’m a journalist from a middle-class background. Who liked me back in the days have become my enemies now. You can give them remand if you want but I won’t hand over my gadgets to them. My lawyers are not here yet they’ll be here shortly. Again, I wont give my gadgets because credibility and sources are precious their a journalist’s own life.
