Ayesha Malik ‘slapped, punched and beaten’

Medical report identifies nine injuries caused to PML-Q leader Malik Ahad's daughter by wooden stick.

LAHORE:


An anti-terrorism court on Friday directed a deputy inspector general (DIG) to take legal action against Defence-A police personnel after an inquiry found that they had ‘tortured’ Ayesha Malik, daughter of PML-Q leader Malik Ahad, in custody.


A medical report was submitted in the court on Friday showing nine injury marks on her body “as a result of slapping, punching and beating with wooden rod”. The court had ordered a medical examination at the last hearing after Malik filed a petition for action against the police officials who had arrested her.

The station house officer and investigation officer of the station have already been suspended after a police inquiry found they had gone out of their way to add kidnapping for ransom to the charges against her. A Lahore High Court bench hearing Malik’s bail application has also ordered an inquiry against an anti-terrorism court judge who remanded her in police custody for 10 days.

Malik, who was arrested after being accused of kidnapping, says she is being victimised by the police on the directions of MNA Hamza Shahbaz, son of Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif. She says the two had a secret marriage and the case against her materialised only after he learned that she had video evidence of their nikah ceremony.
