PESHAWAR: A van carrying prisoners from Chitral to central jail in Dera Islmail Khan overturned near DI Khan.
As a result, seven policemen and the 22 prisoners were injured.
Rescue workers rushed to the site and shifted the injured to the District Headquarters Hospital DI Khan. They said that the condition of one of the injured prisoners was critical.
It is to be mentioned that the prisoners being shifted to DI Khan were those held for rioting in Chitral during protest against alleged blasphemous remarks of a man during Friday prayers on April 21. They were earlier produced before an antiterrorism court in Swat which sent them to the jail.]]>
