A special bench has been formed by the Supreme Court to hear a petition seeking to investigate the alleged torture of PTI Chairman Imran Khan's aide, Shahbaz Gill, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

The three-member bench will hear the petition which is headed by Justice Ijazul Ahsan. The bench also comprises Justice Sayyed Mazahar Ali Akbar Naqvi and Justice Jamal Khan Mandokhail.

The petition’s hearing will take place at the SC at 11am on September 16 (tomorrow).

The PTI had alleged torture and sexual abuse of Gill during his physical remand at Adiala jail, Rawalpindi. The party claimed that Gill was tortured and abused during custody, demanding that the matter be probed.

Gill was in custody following a sedition case filed against him last month for allegedly inciting mutiny within the military's ranks.

Earlier today, the Islamabad High Court (IHC) granted confirmed bail to Gill in the case.
