Blasphemy accused Aasia shifted for security reasons

After the Taliban freed nearly 250 prisoners in a brazen jailbreak in Dera Ismail Khan, Pakistani authorities have shifted a Christian woman accused of blasphemy to a high security prison in Punjab province.
Aasia Bibi was shifted to the womens prison at Multan in southern Punjab amidst high security on Wednesday, The Express Tribune newspaper quoted its sources as saying Friday.

She is being held in a separate cell and will be allowed out for only two hours a day. During the time she is let out of her cell, no other prisoner will be allowed to walk around the jail, the sources said. Round-the-clock security has been ensured at Aasia’s cell. Aasia, 32, faced death threats after the Taliban attacked the jail in Dera Ismail Khan on Sunday night and freed 243 prisoners.
