Ex-Pak Hindu lawmaker seeks political asylum in India

Updated 11 Sep 2019 07:15 AM

 Former Hindu lawmaker from Prime Minister Imran Khans Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf party, Baldev Kumar, on Tuesday sought political asylum from New Delhi.

He is staying with his wife Bhavana and two children in his in-laws house in Punjab's Khanna town for over a month.

"Minorities in Pakistan are not feeling secure and they have been denied rights. There is an increase in atrocities and target killings. I was put behind bars for two years," the former MLA from Barikot (reserved) seat in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly told reporters in Khanna, some 100 km from the state capital here.

He said he won't go back to Pakistan.
