Azam Khan Swati arrested for criticising COAS Bajwa in tweet

The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leader Azam Khan Swati has been arrested for criticising the Chief of Army Staff Qamar Javed Bajwa in a tweet on Thursday. He was arrested after a first information report (FIR) was filed by the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA).

Swati did not hold back from naming the army chief in his tweet and accused him of sabotaging the country by getting the Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and his son Hamza Shehbaz acquitted in the high-profile and the long-standing money-laundering case.

“Mr Bajwa congratulations to you and few with you . Your plan is really working and all criminals are getting free at cost of this country . With these thugs getting free You have legitimise corruption . How you predict now the future of this country ?” Swati had written on Twitter before he was arrested.

Talking to reporters outside the court, Swati said that he was being arrested for naming one individual and not breaking any law or violating the Constitution of the country. He also accused the agencies of torture and stripping down his clothes.
