PESHAWAR: A video of an alleged mobile snatcher went viral in which the local police tortured him in Peshawar. The video caused a stir on social media.
Hussain blames the Banamari police for arresting and torturing him for several days inside a house, where other people were also kept ‘unlawfully’.
The video shows torture marks all over his body and has caused a public outcry over the performance of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa police. Hussain claims he was booked in a fake drug case.
CCPO Qazi Jamil has taken notice of the illegal confinement and torture allegations leveled on the KP police. He formed a high-level committee headed by Cantt SP Wasim Riaz comprising DSP Fazal Wahid and DSP Rashid.
On the other hand, a police official of the Banamari police station said on the condition of anonymity, that the accused was a mobile snatcher and was involved in street crimes for which he was arrested and booked.
