Karachi: Pakistan Tehrek-e-Insaf (PTI) has asked Supreme Court of Pakistan to take notice of torture on its peaceful protesters outside Bilawal House and issue a contempt notice to those who had violated order of Sindh High Court by not removing encroachments in the surrounding areas of Bilawal House, Clifton, Karachi.

Addressing a press conference at the party’s central media cell in Karachi on Monday, Samer Ali Khan, Parliamentary leader of PTI in Sindh Assembly, MPAs Khurram Sheer Khan and Dr Sema Zia said that Sindh government had raised a question mark on the role of Rangers and police by making them to take a biased action against PTI demonstrators.

They said that the peaceful protest was against encroachments and two kilometres away from Bilawal House but Sindh government termed it as an attack on Bilawal House and made the Pakistan People’s Party men to attack the peaceful PTI workers.

They repeated demand of PTI to open all roads around Bilawal House, which had been closed in the pretext of security.
