Peshawar, Oct 28 (IBNS): A Pakistani court has sent Sharbat Gula to 14 days to judicial custody, media reports said on Friday.

Gula became popular across the globe after  making it to a Nat-Geo cover.

She was arrested by Pakistani officials in Peshawar city on  Tuesday.

Pakistani officials reportedly arrested Sharbat Gula for illegally possessing a Pakistani ID card.

A Pakistani court, meanwhile, sent her on a two-day physical remand to the FIA.

"Three National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) officials were also suspended for allegedly issuing her the ID card illegally," Geo News reported.

Sharbat Gula, also known as Sharbat Bibi, is an Afghan woman who was living as a refugee in Pakistan during the time of the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan when she was photographed.
