PTI leader obtains bail in alleged torture case

24

A PTI member from Sahiwal has obtained bail from a magistrate’s court following allegations against him for torturing a female postmaster.

The postmaster, Sofia Qasim, had accused Naveed Aslam of torturing her on September 24.

Qasim claimed that Aslam had “slapped her” while on a visit to the postmaster’s office and “the staff had to intervene to save her and push him out of the office”.

Protests against the PTI member’s highhandedness had broken out, with staff members refusing to work. The police had shown up and after filing a case against Aslam, had arrested him.
