Jan Sher Khan
Citizenship Pakistan

Jan Sher Khan is a Pakistani youth who was held in extrajudicial detention in the Bagram Theater Internment Facility.[1]

In July 2012, following his repatriation, Khan described beatings, and long term suspension form the ceiling, during his detention.[1] He described ongoing psychological problems due to his detention and abusive treatment.

“Sometimes I feel like I’m still in prison. They put me in jail for six years. No proof, nothing. I spent my youth behind bars.”

Khan is seeing a Pakistani army psychologist but his problems and the stigma of being labeled a “terrorist” because of his time in Bagram make it difficult to rebuild his life – to find a job and eventually a wife."
