ISLAMABAD: PTI chief Imran Khan on Thursday condemned the Sharifs for allegedly being involved in the torture of politician Jamshed Dasti. 

In a series of tweet messages, Imran stated that he was disgusted at the fascism of the Sharifs who were carrying forward the dictator Zia-ul-Haq's legacy.

Imran further said that despite their own actions, the Sharifs and their 'band of sycophants' were weeping incessantly over 'Babloo' appearing before the JIT.

Awami Raj Party MNA Jamshed Ahmed Dasti, who is in police custody for last three weeks, claims that he is being tortured and starved by police in Multan Central Jail.

Dasti accused that he had been severely beaten by police and deprived of food for many days, adding that rats and scorpions were released into his jail cell to ‘torture’ him.

Dasti, while speaking to reporters from grilled windows of a prison van, broke down and pleaded for help. He appealed Chief Justice of Pakistan to take notice of police ‘torture’ on him.

Dasti, a lawmaker from Punjab’s Muzaffargarh area, was arrested for lifting illegal blockage of an irrigation canal in his area. He was then sent to jail on 14-day judicial remand.

Police said he was responsible for instigating people to open the sluice gate at Kalu headworks channel.
