ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Peoples Party Senator Saeed Ghani said that the reservations expressed by the party proved right that former federal Minister Dr Asim Hussain was tortured during custody by government agency.

In a statement Senator Saeed Ghani said that after detention by Rangers Dr Asim Hussain is now in custody of National Accountability Bureau. His media trial is being conducted and it has been a history of Nawaz government that it uses government institution as a tool of political victimization. Dr Asim Hussain remained under custody of Rangers and now he is hostage by NAB.

Senator Saeed Ghani said that Dr. Asim Hussain has also been mentally harassed which is a violation of human rights.
