Azam Swati, A Senior PTI Official, Shifted To Sindh From Balochistan


Incarcerated PTI politician Azam Swati who was brought into jail last month for controversial tweets against top military commanders, has been moved from Balochistan to Sindh, reported Qambar police on Saturday.

The action came after the BHC decided that all the first information reports (FIRs) lodged against Senator Swati in the province be deemed null and illegal and ordered his release.

The Sindh Police, after getting custody of Swati from the Balochistan Police, transferred him to Sukkur by a special jet, authorities claimed.

The jailed PTI leader was handed over to Sindh police on two-day transit remand by the judicial magistrate a day earlier.

Several complaints have been recorded against the PTI politician for his controversial tweets criticising the military leadership at different police stations in Sindh.

Sources privy to the case indicated that the imprisoned PTI leader will be appear before a local court today, but the party officials have said that he wasn’t presented before a court.

Expressing his worries about the non-production of Swati before the Nasirabad court today, PTI Senator Saifullah Abro said that the jailed politician has been moved to an unnamed area by the Qambar police.

He asserted that the Sindh Police had seized custody of Swati from Quetta police at 2pm yesterday.

“He has not been brought before any court so far,” the senator claimed and feared that the Sindh police would “kill” Swati in detention.

Several FIRs have been issued against the PTI politician over his controversial tweets at several police stations in Karachi, Quetta, Jacobabad and Qambar.

As many as six complaints were made against the PTI leader at different police stations in Karachi. The FIRs were registered on the behalf of civilians.

Two more FIRs were lodged against the senior PTI politician at the Saddar Police Station in Jacobabad and Nasirabad tehsil of Qambar.

Apart from these, complaints against the senator have also been recorded in Lasbela, Larkana, Sukkur, Khairpur, Shikarpur, Kandhkot, and other cities.

Swati was charged in these instances around the country for his controversial tweets against military officers.
