The senator also said in his application that the police tortured him and the other people present there.
We were tortured at the behest of the ADC, the DIG, and the interior minister; therefore, a case against them should be registered, he said. The police sources said that the police have forwarded the application of Senator Murtaza to the legal branch for taking legal opinion.
