As many as 23 people lost their lives in Karachi and Peshawar cities while over 200 were injured Friday across the country as the government-designated "day of love for Holy Prophet" saw protests and demonstrations turning anarchic.

Courts in Rawalpindi sent 77 suspects to Adiala jail on a 14-day judicial remand.

In Karachi, at least 72 suspects were remanded in police custody by an anti-terrorism court and a judicial magistrate on charges of torching cinemas, banks, police vans, attacking policemen and destroying public as well as private properties.

Five cinema houses, three police vans, three banks and countless shops were set on fire and looted during the mayhem that overtook Karachi for two days ago.

In Lahore, an anti-terror court sent 36 arrested protesters to jail on judicial remand. They faced charges of terrorism, ransacking and torching public and private property, attempted murder and attack on police.

Police had registered a case against 6,036 protesters.
