Express 24/7 correspondent Muhammad Kazim reported that Jamal Tarkae, the cameraman who was detained by the police claimed he was taken to the Kharotabad police station. Tarkae said that the police "misbehaved" with him.

On Monday night, the police beat up the police surgeon who testified against them in court.

Police surgeon Dr Baqir Shah claimed he was targeted for vengeance.

The doctor was visiting a restaurant on Prince Road when up to 10 people pulled up outside and dragged the surgeon out. As the men tried to drag the doctor away to their vehicles, he put up resistance, upon which the men beat him up. His wounds were so severe that he had to be rushed to the civil hospital.
