The Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf leader and former prime minister Imran Khan took to Twitter to express his disapproval of the ‘vengeful manner’ in which the PTI leader Azam Swati is being treated. Khan said that Quetta Police took Swati from the PIMS hospital where he was rushed after complaints of chest pains.
The PTI chief wrote that the Swati’s life was being endangered and demanded that he be released immediately. Swati was arrested last week for the second time in two months after he sent out a tweet, criticising the former chief of army staff Gen (R) Qamar Javed Bajwa.
According to Khan, Swati’s crime would be considered a democratic right in any other civilised country.
The vengeful manner in which Senator Swati is being treated is shocking & condemnable. He was moved to PIMS early morning after suffering severe chest pains & breathing issues. While test results were awaited, Quetta police got him discharged & took him away endangering his life
