A Christian man has died in Kot Lakhput Jail on 9th December 2017. An autopsy report states that Mr Usman Masih (29 yrs) died form a heart attack but in similar fashion to previous Christian deaths under police captivity, Mr Masih's body was littered with bruises and welts, creating suspicion around the reasons behind his death.

On 13th August 2017, Indaryas Ghulam (38 yrs) a husband and father of three children died in prison from tuberculosis, an illness his family say he was refused treatment for. Mr Ghulam's body was also covered in lesion from what his family describe as 'obvious evidence of torture'. You can read his full story (click here)

Usman Masih's death whilst in custody is the 6th incident of a Christian being killed in a prison cell by alleged police brutality since our inception. Robert Danish was the first reported incident - killed September 15th 2009 (click here). We later reported the death of Qamar David in similar circumstances - killed 15th March 2011 (click here)and then on 11th march 2015 we reported on the murder of Zubair Rashid (click here), then on 15th January 2016 Liaquat Masih was killed (click here). Indaryas joins a growing list of falsely accused martyrs in Pakistan. 

We the undersigned demand better prison conditions in Pakistan.

We call for the immediate cessation of brutality in Pakistani jails and for proper medical care being provided to inmates.
