Shock to Imran Khan, Shahbaz Sharif, ISI officer not named in FIR of murderous attack

Lahore: The police in Pakistan’s Punjab province has finally registered an FIR in connection with the attack on former Prime Minister Imran Khan. The Supreme Court on Monday ordered the provincial government to register an FIR in the matter within 24 hours. In the FIR, the name of Naveed Mohammad Bashir, who was detained in the case, has been registered as the main accused. However, it does not mention the names of Pakistan Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif, Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah and Major General Faisal Naseer, whom Khan has accused of plotting his assassination.

Fawad Chaudhry, leader of Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party, said, “We will challenge the FIR in the apex court.” Many questions are being raised about the delay in registering the FIR. The Punjab province is ruled by PTI. “It is shocking that if I am not able to register an FIR for the attack on me despite being the former prime minister of Pakistan, what will happen to the common man,” Chowdhury said. Khan had on Sunday claimed that there was a refusal to register the FIR due to the request to include the name of the Army General in the FIR.

‘I got four bullets’
The Punjab Police said that it has registered an FIR on the directions of the Supreme Court and the suspect, Naveed, has been named therein under sections 302, 324 and 440 of the Pakistan Penal Code and Section 7 of the Anti-Terrorism Act. Police said Naveed Mohammad Bashir was taken into custody from the spot after he confessed to his crime. While confessing to the crime, Bashir had said in a video that he attacked Khan because “he was misleading the public”. Khan was shot at by two gunmen on November 3 during a protest march against the government of Shahbaz Sharif in the Wazirabad area of ​​Punjab province. The bullet had hit his right leg.

Khan had said in an address to the nation on November 4 from a hospital in Lahore, ‘I got hit by four bullets’. He underwent surgery at Shaukat Khanum Hospital. It is a hospital owned by his charitable organization. Khan’s march to the capital, demanding fresh elections, was postponed after a shootout. Khan was ousted from power in April through a no-confidence motion. He said that he would not attend the march till he fully recovered. The federal government led by Shahbaz Sharif has rejected Khan’s demand for fresh elections. The elections are to be held after August next year. Pakistan is reeling from the economic crisis and the devastating effects of floods, and the political turmoil in the country has made the situation worse.
