Man accuses Mardan jail police of torturing his brother

Mardan jail police have been accused of allegedly torturing a prisoner, Asif, who belongs to Charsadda’s Nasta area.

A video showing the torture mark’s on Asif’s body was obtained by SAMAA Digital on Saturday.

His brother, Habibullah, says Asif is being tortured by jail officials for the last nine months. Asif was arrested around nine months ago on charges of sexual abuse by the Nasta police. He was shifted to Mardan jail after his arrest.

Habibullah accused Mardan jail’s chief, Mir Alam, of torturing his brother. “There is no one to ask about him,” Habibullah said.

He said they were conspiring to kill his brother. Habibullah called on Prime Minister Imran Khan and Chief justice of Pakistan to take notice of the incident and provide justice to Asif. He said a legal inquiry should be initiated against the culprits.

Prisons IG Masoodur Rahman says he has received the video, but was unable to contact the deputed officers at the jail as it was a holiday. “I will initiate a complete inquiry on Monday,” he said.
