What was the original case?
A few days ago, a video surfaced in the media of a man named Amir Takhali, who apparently insulted the police while intoxicated.
Later, in another video, it is seen that the same person is being arrested by the Peshawar police, and at the time of his arrest, he was half-exposed and police officers were torturing him.
The arrest took place a few days ago in the Thakal area of Peshawar.
The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) police chief Sanaullah Abbasi met with Afghan consul Najibullah Ahmadzai at the police headquarters in Peshawar on Thursday, the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) police said in a brief statement.
The statement added that at the meeting, the Afghan consulate was “briefed on the police misconduct and this tragic incident”.
Earlier, local officials said that a case had been registered against four police officers and three police officers had been arrested in the case yesterday (Wednesday, June 4).
A high-level investigative committee has already been appointed by the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) state government to probe the case.
