Senior PTI leader Azam Swati has given a strict warning to the Cyber Branch of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA), threatening that he will expose those who tortured him.

In a series of hard-hitting tweets, Azam Swati lashed out at the FIA Cyber Crime Wing and accused it of stealing his CCTV camera and surveillance system to allegedly cover up their tracks.

Moreover, Azam Swat gave a 24-hour deadline to the FIA to complete its investigation and reveal the names of those who tortured him or he will go public with the information himself.

“Warning to FIA cyber Branch Islamabad: Either complete your Enquiry in the next 24 hours naming the agency and persons whom you handed me over or I will tell the court and go public who they were and do not tamper with my CCTV camera equipment. I heard those people naming that person,” Azam Swati said.

“FIA Cyber Branch Islamabad: tell their name who took my illegal custody and subjected me to custodial torture. Obey the law of this land. How do you people sleep? Come out and speak the truth. No one is more mighty than Allah and Law. Ask your conscience and name the person and agency,” the PTI leader said.

“Warning to FIA cyber Branch Islamabad: Please have fear of Allah SWT and law of this land come out and name those people or I will do. It is not Rana Sanaullah but someone else. The people of Pakistan do not want to see the fate of Imran Khan as what happened to Arshid Sharif,” Azam Swati said.

“Warning to FIA cyber Branch Islamabad: During an illegal raid on my house you have illegally taken all CCTV cameras and surveillance systems so you could hide and cover the identity of those white-clothed unknown people whose full faces were covered. Return my system or I go public,” Azam Swati said.

Monday, Azam Khan Swati filed a plea in the Supreme Court against the FIA for arresting him over his “controversial tweets”. The FIA took Swati into custody from his home in Islamabad on October 13. The agency’s cybercrime wing registered a case against Swati over the “controversial” tweets.

However, the politician acquired bail from a trial court in Islamabad after spending days in police and judicial custody. He also accused FIA of torturing him.
