Peshawar became a police state

Jamal Safi

A mentally ill young man was beaten by the police for using vulgar words against the senior superintendent of police (SSP) Operation Peshawar.

It is learned that Peshawar police is torturing innocent civilians on a daily basis mainly due to the deployment of untrained policemen in Peshawar, which is openly committing corruption but senior police officials are trying to remove it. Don’t even bother. The media has written many times about the secret hobbies and black deeds of the Peshawar police  but it does not creep into anyone’s ears.

Yesterday, on the orders of SSP operation, a mentally ill youth from Peshawar was stripped naked in the police station and tortured so much that he lost his memory for a week. After the torture, the police made a video in which the tortured youth was seen stating that he was at fault and the police did not torture him in any way. The young man was also told that the attitude of the police towards him was very good. But the facts came to light when a police officer leaked another video in which a young man was being stripped naked and tortured. The people of Peshawar have gone viral on social media after watching the video and demanded from Prime Minister Imran Khan and Chief Minister Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, including IGP Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, to make SSP Peshawar an OSD immediately.

SSP Operations Zahoor Babar Afridi took notice of the video that went viral on social media and suspended SHO Tehkal Shehryar
