PESHAWAR: Citizens held a protest outside the Peshawar Press Club against police’s act of torturing and stripping a young man, Amir Tehkal, for posting comments against police force.
The protesters included members of political parties, civil society and different circles of people. They demanded from the government to remove Khyber Pakhtunkhwa inspector general and all the police officials involved in this incident.
The demonstrators burnt tyres and blocked Sher Shah Soori Road. They demanded from the government to form a judicial commission for investigation as they did not believe inquiry of the government and police.
