Yadullah Shinwari said his younger brother Rehmanullah,39, was in jail for the last five years. He said his brother was disabled with his one leg and suffering from chronic chest and stomach diseases.
He said they tried their best to take permission from police authorities to take his brother to a hospital in Peshawar but could not get the permission. He said they had no money to pay a bribe to Police officials and the doctor in Peshawar central jail as they always demanded money from them.

He added that a few days ago bleeding started from his mouth and nose of Rahmanullah but he was not provided proper medical care. He said due to the inhuman attitude of Jailer younger breathed his last on Thursday.
Yadullah said that jail authorities were not providing his brother a proper medical treatment on time despite his serious health condition. The elder brother of ill-fated Rehmanullah said that he also met with the jailer Khalid Abbas and the jail doctor dr Pervez to provide proper treatment to his brother but to no avail.

The family members of Rahmanullah appealed to the Chief Minister and IGP of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and other concerned authorities to conduct an inquiry into the death and register FIR against jailer Khalid Abbas and jail doctor Dr. Pervez who allegedly killed Rehmanullah.
