Jamshed dasti was not tortured in jail: Medical report

A medical report of Awami Raj Party MNA Jamshed Ahmed Dasti issued by the Punjab Government on Friday revealed that no marks of violence were found during the MNA’s examination.

The examination report prepared by a board of five doctors from District Headquarters Hospital, found there were no visible marks of violence on the MNA’s body.

In a video broadcast a day earlier, a seemingly agitated Dasti, who was remanded for six days to police custody on June 23, alleged that he is being tortured and starved by police.

He claimed he was beaten up by the police and that rats and scorpions were often released into his jail cell as a means of torturing him.

Dasti, who was arrested by police minutes before he was scheduled to be released from jail after an Anti-Terrorism Court approved his bail application in a different case, also alleged that he was being framed and false cases had been registered against him.

Following the video broadcast, the Punjab Government decided to conduct the medical examination of the MNA, who had also complained of chest pain and toothache.

The dental surgeon consulted during the examination said there are no marks of violence and the toothache being experienced by Dasti is not related to torture, the report says.
