Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Thursday claimed that he has received threats from the banned Lashkar-e-Jhangvi (LeJ).

He tweeted on Thursday that he had received threats and that he would hold the Punjab government responsible for any attacks especially if they fail to act against the banned outfit.



Bilawal has repeatedly accused the Punjab government of sheltering the LeJ.

The group also reportedly sent threatening letters to the Sindh government, warning them to stop "atrocities" otherwise they would resort to targeting law enforcing agents and government officials.

Earlier on March 21, a Lahore High Court division bench granted bail to Malik Ishaq, leader of Ahle Sunnat Wal Jamaat, in two cases where is he accused of delivering provocative speeches.

CM Punjab took notice

Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif took notice of reported threats to Bilawal by the LeJ, Express News reported early on Friday.

Shahbaz directed IG Punjab to look into the matter immediately.
