The mother of a prisoner who was allegedly killed in Bannu jail after torture requested the federal and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa governments to take notice of the killing of his son by jail administration. Addressing a press conference here, she claimed that her son, Sher Afzal, was arrested by political administration two weeks back on charges of having drugs and was shifted to Bannu jail.
After five days of shifting to Bannu jail she received information that her son had died and was asked to make arrangement for an ambulance to shift his dead body. She said that when her family received the dead body it had signs of torture, owing to which it was shifted to a local hospital, where doctors ascertained broken ribs and neck as cause of her son’s death. She has urged strict action against jail administration for killing her son.—APP
