ISLAMABAD    -   Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan has strongly condemned alleged torture on party’s Leader of the Opposition in the Sindh Assem­bly, Haleem Adil Sheikh. 

In a tweet, he said, Pakistan is in the grip of a bunch of criminals. He said these mafias know they will meet their political end in the elec­tions, adding they are using every mafia-type tactic to scare the people of PTI. Earlier, the PTI alleged that Haleem Adil Sheikh was tortured by the Sindh police during custody. The party, its official Twitter ac­count, shared a video of Sheikh, who could be heard saying that he was strangled and even showed a small wound on his shin, which he claimed was swollen. Sheikh was arrested on Monday by the Anti-Encroachment Force in connection with a land-grabbing case. The Force produced him in the court of Malir’s judicial magistrate on Tuesday.
