Punjab Information Minister: Imran Khan’s Cell Resembles In-Laws’ House More Than Jail

Punjab Information Minister

Punjab Information Minister Azma Bukhari has raised concerns about the living conditions of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) founder Imran Khan during his incarceration, alleging that his prison cell resembles more of a lavish residence than a jail.

Her remarks follow the submission of details by the federal government regarding the amenities provided to Khan at Rawalpindi’s Adiala Jail, contradicting Khan’s claims of solitary confinement and restricted access to legal counsel.

Bukhari criticized the apparent disparity in treatment, highlighting the limited visitation rights afforded to Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) members compared to the frequent meetings Khan holds in jail.

She accused Khan of using these gatherings to orchestrate conspiracies and propagate negative narratives against the country.

Expressing skepticism over the facilities provided to Khan, Bukhari called for a judicial commission to investigate his claims regarding jail conditions.

She alleged that Khan receives a disproportionately high number of visitors, implying preferential treatment.

Bukhari humorously remarked that some judges may perceive Khan’s prison cell as akin to a five-star hotel, given the reported amenities.

Details of the facilities provided to Khan paint a picture of considerable comfort, including access to exercise equipment, a separate kitchen, a personalized menu, and leisure items such as books and an LED.

The government’s submission to the court included photographic evidence of these amenities, along with a comprehensive list of visitors who have met Khan during his incarceration.

Bukhari’s statements reflect broader concerns about fairness and transparency in the treatment of incarcerated individuals, particularly high-profile figures like Khan.

The discrepancy between Khan’s reported privileges and the conditions faced by other prisoners raises questions about equity and accountability within the penal system.
