Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Friday evening reached PIMS Hospital in Islamabad to meet his aide Shahbaz Gill but the authorities did not allow him to inquire about his health.
According to the 24News HD TV channel, Imran Khan was reached at PIMS from Bani Gali and a legal team of the PTI was also accompanied by him to brief the legal aspects of the torture of Shahbaz Gill during remand.
When the authorities disallowed meeting Shahbaz Gill who is admitted to the PIMS Hospital, Imran Khan while talking to the media said he was not allowed to meet Shahbaz Gill so he will hold a rally to release him in Islamabad on Saturday.
Imran Khan said Shahbaz Gill was subjected to torture so people should take streets at all divisional headquarters of the country against the rulers’ brutality.
Earlier, PTI’s legal expert and former minister Dr Babar Awan addressed a press conference and alleged to the government that the medical report of Shahbaz Gill was changed overnight.
The PTI leader and former minister said his party will not accept the report of Islamabad police about the torture of Shahbaz Gill.
The PTI workers also chanted slogans outside the cardiac ward in the PIMS hospital. The cardiac patients admitted to the said ward faced difficulties.
On the other hand, the spokesperson of Islamabad Police said in a statement that the accused Shahbaz Shabbir has been shifted to the PIMS Hospital and adequate arrangements have been done for his security.
The police spokesperson said that the accused Shahbaz is not on physical remand and no one is allowed to visit the accused.
