A Pakistani politician on Sunday burst into tears after an intimate video featuring him and his wife went viral. The matter came to the fore after the politician Azam Swati, senator of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) made the startling claim before media persons.
Speaking to media persons, Swati claimed that his wife received the objectionable video on her phone. Some accused sent her the video featuring the couple in a compromising position.
Addressing a press conference, an emotional Swati burst into tears while narrating to the reporters about his ordeal and said that his wife informed him last night that someone had sent her a video from an unknown number.
He revealed that the video was made when he and his wife visited Quetta.
Watch the video here:
Azam Khan Swati, 75, is a loyalist of Imran Khan former Pakistan prime minister and Tehreek-e-Insaf party chief. He was arrested last month by the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) but later released on bail for a tweet criticising General Qamar Javed Bajwa.
After his bail, he alleged that he was subjected to stripped, ridiculed and tortured in custody.
"Because the daughters and granddaughters of my country are listening, I cannot say any further," the Senator said as he burst into tears. He accused elements within the establishment of his troubles.
However, the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) has declared that the video was fake and had been the work of a photoshop.
"After the presser by the Senator, proper investigation is needed and he should formally file an application for it," it said in a statement.
On the other hand, the former Prime Minister of Pakistan, Imran Khan condemned the alleged torture of Swati through a tweet.
Taking to his Twitter handle, Khan who was recently injured in a firing incident, wrote, "I want to apologise on behalf of Pakistan to Mrs Swati, a very private, non-public, tahajut guzaar lady for the pain, anguish and sense of humiliation she is having to suffer."
