ISLAMABAD, August 31 (WNP): Senator A Rehman Malik, Chairman Senate Standing Committee on Interior, Saturday sought a report on the misconduct with Aseefa Bhutto Zardari by the security personnel at PIMS Hospital despite court order.
He also expressed his resentment over the manhandling of other elected public representatives.
As per notice, Rehman Malik is of the view that according to the jail manual the room in the hospital becomes a sub-jail during judicial remand in such cases and the family members cannot be stopped to meet the accused after issuance of the permission from the court of law.
He said it is against the jail manual to stop the family members to see the accused despite of having permission from the court.
The Chairman Committee has directed the Chief Commissioner, Islamabad, I.G. Police Islamabad, I.G. Prisons Government of Punjab and PIMS Administration to inquire the whole incident and identity those responsible for the misconduct with Ms. Aseefa Bhutto Zardari and manhandling of other elected public representatives by the Security Personnel and other staff at PIMS Hospital, Islamabad.
The notice sent to Secretary Interior directs that a report on the said incident should be furnished within one week to be presented in the next meeting of the Committee.
Senator A. Rehman Malik said that it is inhumane act to stop a daughter from meeting her ailing father despite of having court orders. He said that Government has sheer vendetta against President Asif Ali Zardari which was visible from the harsh attitude towards his daughter Aseefa Bhutto Zardari who was physically blocked to visit her father in hospital despite of having court order in her hand.
