LAHORE: Former premier and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan has brought a citizen before the media who was allegedly abducted and tortured to give false statements against Usman Dar, ARY News reported on Saturday.
Imran Khan addressed the media via video link today along with PTI leader Usman Dar and a citizen who had been allegedly abducted and tortured.
“I want to tell the nation about what is happening in the country. Attempts are being made to turn Pakistan into a Banana republic. No one is caring about the law and the constitution but the law is in hands of the powerful people,” he added.
The PTI chief said that people are being forced to give false statements after the ouster of the PTI government.
“Attempts were made to file fake cases, corruption cases and run audiotapes to blackmail us,” he said.
He said that the affected citizen namely Javed Ali will tell his story by himself. He added that Usman Dar had facilitated Javed Ali to get a watchman’s position – a Grade 4 government job.
Javed Ali said that he works as a watchman in the education department and he was summoned via a telephone call.
“Four policemen came in and shifted me to an unknown location after covering my face with a cloth. Some unidentified men had also come there.”
