The lawyer for the main suspect in the Zohra Shahid murder case said that the accused man is being subjected to brutal torture by the police.
The defense counsel added that Kaleem is passing blood in his urine and that his feet are swollen as a result of this torture.
Jiwani said that the earlier challans presented did not state Kaleem’s name in column number two, nor was Kaleem’s role in the crime indicated.
Police presented the suspect in ATC on Thursday and asked for his 90 days remand on which the court gave the custody of Kaleem to police on seven days remand instead and directed the officials to conduct a medical checkup of the suspect.
Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) had filed a missing plea of Kaleem in February which is still pending.
Earlier, Rangers raided the area of Clifton a day before and arrested the main perpetrator in the Zahra Shahid case.
