“75-year-old Senator Azam Swati has been subjected to custodial torture, beaten up in front of his grandchildren, his house vandalised and sealed, and he is being dragged from one [province] to another under multiple false FIRs against him in total violation of all laws and basic human rights enshrined in our Constitution,” he noted.

The PTI Chairman added in contrast, “an absconder responsible for billions in corruption and money laundering, Salman Shahbaz, is drycleaned and returns to Pakisan”.
