Reports of threats to Imran Khan’s life received before the attack: Pak minister


Pakistan’s Punjab Province Home Minister Omar Sarfaraz Cheema has claimed that reports regarding serious threats to Imran Khan’s life were already received by authorities before the attack on him in Wazirabad.
Cheema further added that the threats to Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan’s life have increased and foolproof security is now being provided. It is alleged by Cheema that Pakistan Muslim League head Nawaz Sharif has been spreading religious hatred and running a campaign against Imran Khan, reports said. However, he pointed out that the attack on Imran Khan’s life in Wazirabad was not a part of religious hatred but a planned gun attack. While questioning the transparency of the probe, Cheema further said that the investigation of the Imran Khan attack case is headed by people who are already conspiring and are involved in the assassination attempt.
Although he has confirmed that an investigation into the case is ongoing and soon a report will be released. Imran Khan was shot in the legs on November 3, six days into the protest march. After the attack, he had accused a senior army officer, Major General Faisal Naseer, of being behind the attempt on his life.
Imran Khan was attacked near his container in Punjab province during his long march in Wazirabad on Thursday. He sustained injuries on his leg and was shifted to a hospital for treatment.
