Christian man accused of blasphemy, jumps off FIA building in Pakistan

A Christian man accused of blasphemy in Pakistan reportedly jumped off the fourth floor of the building of an investigation agency in Lahore, according to officials.

Sajjad Masih, 28, who has been in critical condition at Mayo Hospital, said the FIA had called him to their headquarters at Regal Chowk to record statement. He said the officials allegedly tortured him and snatched his mobile phone.

“They asked me to abuse myself, but I refused to do so. Later, they asked me to sexually assault my cousin, but I remained silent and jumped from the building,” he said.
