Karachi: Police personnel allegedly tortured the grandson of Abdul Sattar Edhi, Ahmed Edhi, in Karachi.
According to details, the incident occurred in port city’s Sir Syed Town when police stopped Ahmed during snap checking.
Abdul Sattar Edhi’s son Faisal Edhi said that Station House Officer (SHO) of Sir Syed Town has tendered an apology and the matter was resolved now.
Following the incident, the DIG West has suspended the involved police personnel.
Also, an investigation is underway against the suspended policemen, SSP Central said.
Abdul Sattar Edhi is revered as a national hero in Pakistan of nearly legendary status.
He established the welfare organisation Edhi Foundation almost six decades ago that owns and runs Pakistan’s largest ambulance service, as well as nursing homes, orphanages, clinics, maternity wards, morgues, homes for the elderly, and women’s shelters, along with rehabilitation centers and soup kitchens across the country.
He passed away on Friday after a prolonged illness at the age of 88.
Funeral prayers for Edhi were attended by top military and political leadership.
