Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Shehryar Afridi’s lawyer told the Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Monday that his client is being kept in a “death cell”. During the hearing of a case against the arrest of the PTI leader, Marwat requested Justice Arbab Muhammad Tahir to transfer Afridi to an A-class jail. Marwat urged the court to grant Afridi permission to meet his children and transfer the PTI leader to an A-class jail. “My client is a masters graduate and should be kept in prison according to that,” he requested. The judge subsequently directed prison officials to submit Afridi’s medical report by June 2 and adjourned the hearing. The PTI leader was arrested on May 16. According to the party, the ex-minister was “picked up” from Islamabad allegedly along with his wife.
