Peshawar

June 30, 2020

PESHAWAR: The government has notified a judicial commission headed by Justice Lal Jan Khattak of the Peshawar High Court to probe the humiliation of a young man in the custody of the local police.

The commission will inquire into the case of police torture and humiliation of Radiullah alias Amir of Tehkal in police custody last week. People had protested on social media and later taken to the streets after the video of Amir went viral in which he was seen being stripped and humiliated by the cops in custody.

According to a notification by the Home and Tribal Affairs Department, the one member commission will inquire into and determine the root causes and facts of the incident, fix responsibility on the officials concerned, determine institutional lacunas in the system leading to such incidents and make recommendations to avert these happenings in future. The commission will have the powers to summon anyone and require production of any document in the case. It will complete the inquiry within 15 days.
