Imran Khan strongly reacts over abduction of PTI social media activist Azhar Mashwani
ISLAMABAD: Former prime minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan has condemned the ‘abduction’ of party’s social media head Azhar Mashwani, castigating Islamabad and Punjab police for ‘breaking all the laws with impunity’.
Taking to Twitter, the former premier claimed that Azhar Mashwani was “abducted on Thursday afternoon from Lahore and his whereabouts were unknown”.
“Enough is enough. Police in Punjab [and] Islamabad are breaking all laws with impunity as they target PTI,” Imran Khan wrote on Twitter, demanding immediate release of party’s activist.
The PTI chief claimed that Senator Shibli Faraz and Omar Sultan, on March 18, were ‘badly beaten’ by Islamabad police despite both having permission to be inside Judicial Complex.
“Hassaan Niazi [Khan’s newphew] was abducted [immediately] after getting bail and later charged with sham FIRs to keep him locked up,” he said, announcing to send pictures of Punjab and Islamabad Inspector-Generals (IGs) and officers indulged in ‘criminal behaviour’ to international Human Rights organisation.
