PTI activists tortured by Punjab police
By By Arshad Dogar and Zubair Azam
FORTY PTI workers, including three sisters of Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan, were rounded up by police from a peaceful protest demonstration against Imran’s detention at Barkat Market, after a brutal baton-charge and thrashing by plain clothed security personnel, here on Thursday.
The female PTI workers, including Imranís sisters were released later during the night. Imran was arrested by police outside PU on Wednesday after IJT activists kidnapped and tortured him for one hour inside the PU campus.
Mrs. Rani Hafiz Khan, Uzma Khan and Aleema Khan, sisters of Imran, along with PTI office bearers were proceeding towards Punjab University new campus from Barkat Market to protest against the detention of Imran and his manhandling by IJT, when massive police contingents armed with batons countered them. PTI Lahore president Shabbir Sial and women wing president Saloni Bokhari were also present. The protestors carried banners and placards, hailing Imran and condemning the JI’s student wing. They also chanted slogans against the IJT. The PTI wanted to join a student procession in PU against IJT’s brutality. Meanwhile, more than 200 policemen equipped with batons and firearms under the supervision of SP Model Town Imran Ahmar and DSP Shams appeared and intercepted them. The protestors refused to stop rallying. Police on resistance thrashed male and female protestors and shoved them into a prison van. In the absence of lady police, male police officials thrashed and manhandled the PTI activists. The lady activists started crying and shouting at their arrest which created panic in the market. The shopkeepers and their clients also came on road after witnessing police brutality. The leaders of trader unions gathered at the spot and appealed to the SP Model Town to leave the market as their business was being affected. Lady activists tried to save the arrests of male activists and formed a cordon around them but plain clothed security personnel bashed them as well. Later lady police were called who arrested more than 20 lady activists including three sisters of PTI Chairman Imran Khan. The arrested male workers were shifted to Garden Town police station while women were first shifted to Gulberg police station and later to the Model Town police station.
Sources in police said the Garden Town police have registered a case against 24 nominated male and female PTI workers and 10 unknown workers on the charges violation of section 144, 186 and 188 of PPC. The arrested PTI women were identified as Uzma, Nasim Zohra, Azhar Sajjid, Salma Ejaz, Dr Uzma Asif, Rabia Khan, Sadiqa, Samia Khan, Mrs Rizwan, Munazza Hassan, Talat Naqvi, Professor Shahid Fazal. In a press statement the PTI spokesman alleged the PTI workers and activists including women had been thrashed on the special instructions of Punjab Chief Minister Pervaiz Elahi by the plain clothed personnel. He added the brutal police actions would not stop the activists to denounce the autocratic rule of General Musharraf and demanded immediate release of their leader and workers.
