LAHORE: Police on Saturday informed Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leaders of a possible attack on PTI chairman Imran Khan over his Lahore visit.
In a letter, police said Khan could be attacked by terrorists over his Lahore visit. The force said the PTI supremo had been intimated on this account earlier too.
Police advised the PTI to ensure foolproof security across venue Khan was scheduled to speak at. The PTI chief, visiting Lahore in connection with a party membership drive, is slated to make an appearance across various events on Saturday and Sunday.
Separately, two days after a rare meeting between the top judge and prime minister, Khan said on Thursday that Premier Shahid Khaqan Abbasi must have begged Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar to save Nawaz Sharif through another National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO).
Addressing a press conference with Balochistan Chief Minister Abdul Quddus Bizenjo in Quetta, Khan accused the premier of working on a one-point agenda of protecting “Nawaz Sharif’s theft.”
According to Khan, PM Abbasi has been striving to save an individual who has stolen billions of rupees and lies constantly. He added that an erstwhile PM refusing to accept a verdict constituted a first in the nation’s history.
