Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Sher Afzal Marwat has made startling claims, accusing Punjab Chief Minister Maryam Nawaz of orchestrating an assassination plot against him. The serious allegations were brought to light on Saturday, as Marwat spoke to journalists outside Parliament House, asserting that the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader had hired 'contract killers' to target him.

According to Marwat, the alleged contract to assassinate him was not just a verbal threat but involved tangible financial transactions.

He claimed that CM Maryam had authorised a payment for the sinister plan, and the transaction had taken place in Dubai. The PTI leader suggested that the chief minister's involvement came to light through intercepted telephone conversations, which he intended to share with relevant investigation authorities.

Meanwhile, the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) has summoned former PTI lawmaker Shandana Gulzar, who has also leveled allegations against Maryam Nawaz.

The PML-N had filed a complaint against Gulzar with the FIA, prompting the agency to initiate an inquiry into the serious accusations.

In response to the escalating situation, Punjab's Information Minister Uzma Bukhari demanded that Gulzar provide concrete evidence to substantiate her allegations. Bukhari emphasised that the government would not allow her to evade accountability.
