PTI Chairman and former Prime Minister Imran Khan on Friday claimed his ‘Chief of Staff’ Shahbaz Gill was being sexually abused and humiliated during his incarceration.
“All the pictures and videos show clearly Gill was tortured both mentally and physically including sexual abuse – most too gruesome to relate,” Imran Khan said in a twitter statement Friday, along with a video of Gill during his appearance before an Islamabad district and sessions court.
“He was humiliated to break him down. I now have full detailed info. ICT police says it did not inflict any torture,” he further wrote.
“[My question is..] Who tortured Gill? There is a general perception in the public at large and in our minds too as to who could have carried out the gruesome torture. Remember the public will react. We will leave no stone unturned to find out those responsible and bring them to justice,” Imran went on to say in his subsequent tweet.
Later in the evening, the PTI Chairman visited Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS) to meet Shahbaz Gill, who was shifted to the hospital once again for his another medical checkup, as per Islamabad district and sessions court orders.
However, Imran wasn’t allowed to meet Shahbaz, and he left PIMS without visiting his Chief of Staff. “We were not allowed to meet Shahbaz Gill. Islamabad Police barred us from meeting Shahbaz despite court orders. I wonder whether upon whose orders the police was acting upon,” Imran said while talking to media outside PIMS.
“Is this the rule of law? Looters are being imposed on us. It is better to die instead of living a life of slavery,” he said in his short media talk.
Shahbaz Gill is currently under Islamabad Police’s arrest for ‘sedition’ and ‘inciting the public against state institutions’. He was arrested after his controversial statement through an audio beeper on ARY News.

Earlier, an Islamabad district and sessions court on Friday directed Islamabad police to shift PTI leader Shahbaz Gill to the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (Pims) for another medical examination.
Gill was taken to court in an ambulance from Pims, where he was shifted late on Wednesday night after he complained of breathing problems amid reports of him being subjected to torture while in police custody.
