Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) leader Naeem-ul-Haq on Sunday relayed that the party has decided to put an end to physical torture carried out at police stations after assuming power in next few days.

Haq said the PTI leadership is ready to take steps against the torturing of citizens at police stations and by other law enforcement agencies (LEAs), Express News reported.

"[PTI chief] Imran Khan after taking oath [as prime minister] may direct an end to torture of citizens in police stations," Haq stated.

He termed 'torturing' as an un-Islamic and unconstitutional act because of which mostly poor people are affected.

"The PTI will put an end to all sort of torture in police stations and take all steps in the right direction," he was quoted as saying.

PM-in-waiting Imran Khan has also decided to make reforms in the state run Pakistan Television (PTV) and Radio Pakistan (RP).

Sources within PTI also informed that Khan has issued directives pertaining to state run channels and how they should not be restricted to only government coverage but even convey information and provide entertainment.

Apart from this, all necessary changes for PTV reforms will be taken and the confidence of the public in RP will also be restored.
