Bol TV anchor Jameel Farooqui held

52

Whereabouts of anchorperson and popular YouTuber Jameel Farooqui remained unknown on Monday as Islamabad police said he had been arrested in Karachi for falsely accusing the law enforcement agency of physically and sexually assaulting PTI leader Shahbaz Gill while Zaman Town SHO Zahid Lodhi denied any such step by the local police.

A spokesperson for Islamabad police in a statement said that a case had been registered against Farooqui at the Ramna police station.

“In his vlog, the suspect falsely accused Islamabad police of sexually and physically assaulting Gill,” the statement said.

The anchorperson’s allegations are a reiteration of the PTI’s claims of Gill being “sexually abused” and “tortured both mentally and physically” by investigators during the ongoing probe against him in a sedition case.
