PTI Claims Imran Khan ‘Slow Poisoned’ in Attock Jail


The core committee of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) expressed strong reservations about the delay in hearing the bail plea of party chairman Imran Khan, the ousted prime minister. The committee raised concerns that Imran Khan might be subjected to a sinister tactic by being administered slow poison while incarcerated. The party alleged that he was being denied the right to order food and water from home, worsening concerns for his well-being and safety.

The committee also criticized the decision-making process regarding Imran Khan’s transfer from Attock Jail to Adiala Jail in Rawalpindi. They argued that the facilities at Attock Jail were inadequate for a former prime minister, and his imprisonment there was considered a breach of regulations.

Furthermore, the committee expressed distress over a recent decision by a “controversial judge” against Imran Khan and criticized the “biased” conduct of a high court chief justice, suggesting that it was eroding the principles of justice.

The core committee called for comprehensive judicial reforms in lower courts to ensure justice and urged the Supreme Court to take proactive steps in improving the functioning of lower courts to safeguard the integrity of the justice system.

Despite these challenges, the committee affirmed PTI’s commitment to celebrating Independence Day with enthusiasm and a renewed resolve to resist “brutality and fascism.” The party condemned the alleged crackdown on its activists and raids on the residences of party leaders and activists.

Earlier, Imran Khan was sentenced to three years in prison and fined for false asset declarations to the Election Commission of Pakistan. He approached the Islamabad High Court to challenge his conviction and requested a transfer from Attock Prison to Adiala Jail. The IHC Chief Justice reserved his verdict on Imran’s transfer application.
