Condemning the recent attack at Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan’s residence by a horde of men, the party’s women’s wing held a protest on Thursday demanding increased security for their leader.
Addressing a demonstration outside the Peshawar Press Club, PTI women’s wing provincial leader Ayesha Gulalai blamed the interior ministry for not providing adequate security to Imran Khan.
Gulalai said the party had earlier requested the interior minister for more security but the request fell on deaf ears, adding they have now directed their attention towards the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP).
According to her, around 100 people stormed Khan’s residence on Wednesday putting the lives of his family members at risk. She added the local administration and police did not respond despite repeated calls.
