Former PTI MPA Baldev Kumar files for political asylum in India

PESHAWAR: The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) former member of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly, Baldev Kumar, has filed for political asylum in India.

Former MPA Baldev Kumar, a Sikh man, said he had already shifted his children to India and that he had travelled to New Delhi for political asylum.

In this regard, KP Information Minister Shaukat Yousafzai reacted to the development, saying Kumar could live wherever he wished to. The PTI does not have any place for criminals, he added.

Last year, on April 26, an anti-terrorism court in Buner had acquitted the Sikh politician and five others in the murder case of PTI MPA Sardar Soran Singh.
