The poor Riaz Masih asking justice, who will make it possible????
Pakistan has ratified the U N Convention against torture and other degrading treatment or punishment, cruel, inhuman way of torture in June 2010. But the 1300 police station all over the country are involved in torture activities at each person. So it means that 1300 people were tortured by police every day. The Police are always using different ways of torture, EXP, providing dirty water, abusing, asking bribe, many times victims are died under the custody of police, Its is surprised that in constitution of Islamic republic of Pakistan hasn’t any law against torture in police custody. So all victims or criminals either they are not punished in any case always depend at investigation officer to declare him guilty or innocent.
Sexual violence is reported by up to 70% of women in police custody, along with violation of basic human rights.
There is proper independent investigation system to investigate modern and forensic method in criminal justice system.
Thank you very Much.
