Former Pakistan prime minister Imran Khan is not being treated well in Attock Jail, a report by an additional sessions judge accessed by CNN-News18 reveals. The report says a team visited the jail and everyone was found to be happy. There were women, juveniles, and other civil prisoners. The cell where Imran Khan was confined was also visited. The former PM expressed grave concern about the placement of CCTV cameras.
According to the report, a camera has been installed right in front of Khan’s cell, just 5-6 feet away from his room.
The CCTV covers his every activity including toilet use and there is no privacy while defecating or bathing, says the report.
The concern expressed by the prisoner is a genuine one and is also a violation of Rules 257 and 771 of Pakistan Prison Rules, 1978, it says.
However, the superintendent present there has given assurance to redress this grievance of the prisoner.
Imran Khan also complained that “his wife and lawyers have no easy access to him”.
The superintendent has also assured that the prisoner shall be given access to his wife and lawyers as per prevailing rules.
