PTM leader Ali Wazir says his life is in danger, claims he was attacked twice in hospital
Islamabad: Pashtun Tahaffuz Movement (PTM) lawmaker Ali Wazir has said his life is in danger and he even alleged that he was attacked twice in the hospital where he is undergoing treatment.
Wazir is currently undergoing treatment in Karachi's Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre.
He demanded that he should be taken to Central Jail in Karachi or be taken to Islamabad to attend the ongoing budget session in the National Assembly (NA).
Wazir — who is facing sedition and hate speech charges in multiple cases and has been imprisoned at the Karachi Central Jail since Dec 31, 2020 — claimed while addressing PTM workers outside the hospital late on Wednesday night that he had been attacked twice at the hospital, reports Dawn News.
According to Wazir, he was first attacked on his first day at the hospital and later again on Wednesday night.
"I should be taken to Islamabad to attend the budget session [in the NA and] raise the problems of my constituency," Wazir was quoted as saying by Dawn News.
Otherwise, he said, "I demand that I should be sent back to the jail as I feel insecure here."
