Ex-PTI MPA Baldev Kumar seeks political asylum in India


(Karachi News): A PTI MPA from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa has sought asylum in India a year. There is an increase in atrocities and target killings. I was put behind bars for two years,” he told Indian reporters. Local media said he’s moved to Ludhiana with his loved ones and asked Indian prime minister to give him political asylum.

In April last year that an Anti-Terrorism Court at Buner district acquitted Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI)’s minority Member Provincial Assembly Baldev Kumar from the murder case of lawmaker Soran Singh by providing him with the benefit of the doubt.

He had been detained in the murder case of PTI pioneer Soran Singh, who had been murdered on April 22, 2016, at Buner district. The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) advised Baldev Kumar as MPA because his name was on top of this list of candidates submitted by the PTI for the reserved seats for minorities after Soran Singh’s killing. But during the evaluation, Baldev Kumar was nominated at the murder case of Soran Singh and has been detained.
