Zille Shah, another name for Ali Bilal, was a Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf activist who worked hard and aggressively.
PTI claims that police tortured and killed 40-year-old Ali Bilal during a protest.
The party claims that since rumours of Imran Khan’s arrest began, Bilal, a resident of Jahangir Town, has remained camped outside Zaman Park.
Ali Bilal, also known as Zille Shah, was a Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf activist who put in a lot of effort and was aggressive.
PTI alleges that during a protest, police tortured and killed Ali Bilal, 40.
The group asserts that Jahangir Town resident Bilal has remained camped outside Zaman Park ever since there have been rumours of Imran Khan’s arrest.
The accidental death of Ali Bilal has infuriated his friends and fellow party members to the point where demands are being made for the information surrounding his passing.
It should be noted that following the implementation of Section 144, the PTI reported on Wednesday that one of its employees had died in Lahore during a police crackdown on those attending the party’s rally.
Imran Khan claimed that party employee Ali Bilal was “murdered by Punjab police” in a tweet.
“Shameful, this brutality on unarmed PTI workers who were coming to attend an election rally. Pakistan is in the grip of murderous criminals,” he said, adding that the party would file cases against the Punjab inspector general, the Lahore capital city police officer (CCPO) and others for “murder”.

In a second tweet, Imran shared a video of Bilal, adding that it showed that the PTI worker was alive while being transported to the police station.
“So, he was killed while in police custody — such is the murderous bent of the present regime and the Punjab police,” he said.
Imran later said he wanted the party’s district presidents and officeholders across the country to offer funeral prayers in absentia for “our martyred worker”.
