Imran defends nephews, calls Punjab police “monster force” — new video of incident emerges

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan has once again turned the guns of Punjab government – this time over alleged manhandling of his nephews during Punjab police detention.

Khan’s nephews – Azeem and Abdullah – were arrested on Wednesday from Lahore’s Race Course area after they allegedly hurled abuses at a traffic warden who stopped them for violating traffic rules.

In his tweets, the PTI head blasted the Punjab police, calling them “monster force”. He asked: “Since when has Punjab police beaten & tortured people for traffic offence? My nephews were meted out this treatment because of who they are.”

My nephews grew up in front of me & are 2 of the most polite & decent youngsters. I’m proud of the way their parents have brought them up, said Khan.

The PTI chief also not spared Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif, saying “Shameful how Shahbaz Sharif had the gall to call my sister when he is responsible for turning Punjab police into a monster force.”

He vowed to pursue the case “to the very end and expose how Punjab government is using its police for political victimisation.”
