Imran Khan Attacked: Former Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Sunday (November 6) said that an FIR has not been registered in his “attempt to murder” case as authorities are refusing to register a case till the army general’s name is dropped from the complaint. Huh.
70-year-old Khan was shot in the right leg when two gunmen opened fire on a container during the ‘Hakiki Azadi March’ in Wazirabad district of Punjab province. Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party chief Imran Khan has alleged that Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif, Home Minister Rana Sanaullah and Major General Faisal Naseer had killed former Punjab governor Salman Taseer at the hands of religious fanatics in 2011. plotted to kill.
Who plotted the murder?
Talking to reporters from Lahore’s Shaukat Khanum Hospital, former PM Imran Khan said, “Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif talked about judicial commission and I welcome it, but my first question is what will it do? When all the agencies come under the three people nominated by me, who will investigate?’ “How can there be a fair and independent investigation? This is not possible. That’s why I asked him to resign, so that the investigation can be fair.
Prime Minister Shahbaz on Saturday demanded the setting up of an “all-judge commission” of the Supreme Court to probe Khan’s allegations. Khan has alleged that the prime minister, the home minister and a senior army officer hatched a conspiracy to kill him.
PM Shahbaz Sharif had also said that he would step down if he was found to be involved in any conspiracy related to the attack on Khan. The deadlock over the registration of the FIR deepened at that time.
When the former prime minister’s party questioned the police’s alleged reluctance to register his complaint. The standoff arose because of Khan’s insistence on including the name of an army general in the FIR. He said that he has every right to name those responsible for the attack in the FIR, but the authorities in Punjab are refusing to register an FIR till then. Unless he removes the name of the concerned military officer from it.
What did the police say?
Former PM Imran Khan said that our FIR was not registered because they (police) say, ‘Okay, we are ready (to register FIR) against Prime Minister and Home Minister, but for you Army General Major Faisal’ Can’t do that.’ The Punjab Police has detained at least three suspects in connection with the firing case, but denied receiving any application for an FIR from Khan’s party Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf.
On the other hand, Khan’s relative and lawyer Hasan Niazi told Dawn that he had applied to the police station, but the police personnel did not give him any acknowledgment. One worker of Khan’s party was killed and 14 people including Khan were injured in the firing.
Shah Mehmood Qureshi, vice-president of Imran Khan’s party and former foreign minister, alleged that some officials seem to have tied their hands in discharging their duties and are under pressure not to consider their plea for Wazirabad attack.
Pakistan government confused! First ban imposed on broadcast of Imran Khan’s speeches, then withdrawn
