No FIR still filed in PTI worker's death

Islamabad: Pakistan police are yet to register a case on the death of PTI worker Ali Bilal even as his post-mortem result showed he died due to excessive injuries.

However, police sources told Dawn on Friday that they had the two men — who brought badly Bilal’s badly-injured body to hospital — in custody, adding that they claimed he was injured in a road accident.

Senior lawyer Azhar Siddique, who represents the PTI in several cases, told Dawn News the death was a “clear case of custodial torture” and denying the legal right to register the FIR has revealed “ill-intentions of the police”.

The lawyer said that there were reports that the family was moving to the court to seek an order for the registration of a murder case against the police.

Talking to Dawn, Siddique said the medico-legal examination and fresh video clips of the same day (March 8), showing the victim inside a police van, has shed light on the police’s atrocity and brutality. Police have claimed that the videos are old.
