Punjab IG prison visits PTI chairman; reviews location of cameras in his barrack to ensure his privacy


RAWALPINDI:PTI chairman Imran Khan on Sunday expressed his satisfaction over the facilities provided to him at Attock District Jail when Punjab IG Prisons Mian Farooq Nazir visited him there.

The Punjab police official met with the deposed premier, who was serving a three-year prison term at Attock Jail after he was found guilty in the Toshakhana (gift repository) case, and inquired about the facilities provided to him there.

According to the jail officials, the IG prisons reviewed the location of the cameras installed in the PTI chairman’s barrack to ensure his privacy.

The jail officials said the PTI chief had been provided with a bed, pillow, mattress, chair, and air-cooler as per the prison law.

They added that the former premier had also been provided with a fan, prayer room, the Holy Quran with English translation, books, newspaper, thermos, dates, honey, tissue papers, and perfume as well.


The officials continued that there was a Western toilet seat, wash basin, soap, air freshener towel, and tissue papers in the washroom for Imran.

They further said five doctors had been appointed to provide medical facilities to the PTI chairman – each of them present on duty for eight hours.

Special food is also provided to the PTI chief with the approval of the IG prisons. The food is served to him by a special team after being examined by a doctor.

Around a week ago, the PTI core committee had claimed that there was a growing apprehension that Imran might be subjected to a sinister tactic by being administered slow poison during his incarceration.

The party alleged that its chief was being denied the right to order food and water from home, exacerbating concerns for his well-being and safety.

The core committee further voiced its distress over the sluggish decision-making process regarding the transfer of Imran Khan from Attock Jail to Adiala Jail in Rawalpindi.

The PTI contended that the facilities available at Attock Jail were inadequate, particularly given Imran’s status as a former premier.

The party deemed his imprisonment in Attock Jail as a breach of regulations.
