Pakistani politician Azam Swati made a shocking claim. The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) senator claimed that his wife has received an objectionable video featuring the couple in a compromising position.

The 75-year-old, a loyalist of ex-prime minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf party chief Imran Khan, was last month taken into custody by the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) but later released on bail after he had criticised General Qamar Javed Bajwa in a tweet.

Azam Swati later alleged that he was subjected to custodial torture, stripped, and ridiculed.

Talking to the media, an emotional Azam Swati broke down while telling 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.

Watch the video below: 

"Because the daughters and granddaughters of my country are listening, I cannot say any further," the Senator said as he burst into tears.

Azam also revealed that the video was made when he and his wife visited Quetta and accused elements within the establishment of his troubles.

In the meantime, the 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.

Taking to twitter, the Ex-Prime Minister of Pakistan, Imran Khan condemned the alleged torture of Mr Swati. He 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."
