Nothing is changed so far in police depts. Punjab Police have become even more brutal in this one year tenure of CM Buzdar. He was incompetent, he is and there's no chance of betterment. So Plz @ImranKhanPTI make a move and replace him.

i have no words to show my grief,
#PoliceGardi is increasing day by day but nobody in this state that control them.
He was not innocent but death wasn't the penalty of his crime.

According to Zeeshan Randhawa, the district police officer’s spokesperson, Ayubi started behaving like a ‘mad man’ in the lockup before he was transferred to Sheikh Zayed Medical College Hospital. There, doctors confirmed his death.
