KARACHI - Samaa TV station head in Sukkur Imdad Phulpoto was abducted and tortured by police Thursday before being released hours later.
The channel reported the journalist had done several stories exposing Leader of the Opposition Syed Khursheed Shah.
Police barged into his house at 8:00am, tortured his family members before he was taken away.
Television images showed Phulpoto’s shirt stained in blood with bruises on his face and he appeared to limp.
Samaa quoted Phulpoto as saying his brother and a cousin were also picked up by police and tortured. "I wasn't asked anything by the police. They just kept torturing me." He said he was asked to sign a blank paper but he refused.
Journalists across the country protested the abduction.
