Another attempt on Imran Khan’s life in making, claims Babar Awan

  • Once again, Imran’s life is in danger, party’s lawyer says.
  • Why these cases are being filed in Islamabad, asks PTI leader. 
  • Khan should be allowed to appear virtually before court, urges Awan.

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) senior leader Advocate Babar Awan on Friday claimed there was strong evidence suggesting that a plan was being hatched by foreign agencies to launch another assassination attempt on PTI Chairman Imran Khan

It should be noted that during the PTI long march, a gunman opened fire at the former prime minister in Wazirabad, Gujranwala district in November last year, injuring him in the legs. 

“Some people mocked my media talk adding that the government maintains two stances on Imran Khan’s life attempt,” Awan said speaking at a press conference at PTI’s office in Islamabad.

 “One was: no life attempt was made on Khan and the second he was attacked by a religious fanatic.”

The former premier, who was ousted in a vote of no confidence last year, had reiterated twice that he would be attacked, while the joint Investigation Team (JIT) had also established Khan was shot at from three different directions, he added. 

“Once again, Imran’s life is in danger and we have strong evidence to support it. New assassination attempts are being schemed against Khan,” claimed the PTI stalwart.

Demanding answers from the government regarding the security risks and threats facing the PTI chief, Awan underlined that more than 100 cases had been registered against Khan in Islamabad alone. 

“Why these cases are being filed in Islamabad? Who shut the CCTV cameras? Who removed security from the anti-terrorism court (ATC), and who called the security personnel off the judicial complex?” 

He went on to say: “The lawyers of Islamabad deem the Kachehri (Judicial Complex) as a death trap”.

During Imran’s appearance before ATC, there was no security in sight. “Why can’t  Khan be allowed to appear virtually before the court when his attacker can be allowed to do so?” Babar asked.

He said  Khan should be dealt with by the rule of law but he should also be allowed to appear virtually before the court.

“In order to deprive Imran Khan of his personal security, lawsuits are being filed against his personal security staff,” Awan said while mentioning that Ahmed Niazi, the PTI chief’s security in-charge was facing such cases.

Awan revealed they were informed that Khan would be called to Kachehri and killed there. “The PTI chairman is being stressed to come out and appear before the court,” he said. 

“There are two kinds of cases against the PTI chief. The cases of atrocities that took place in May are also being registered against us[PTI].” 

He said around 120 party workers had been detained, adding, there had been numerous killings in Kachehris in the past.   

Awan said the First Investigation Report (FIR) would definitely be filed for the Wazirabad incident, and demanded that PM Shehbaz and his government give PTI in writing that if anything happened to Khan, their [government] would be responsible for it.

PTI will petition the SJC to stop the “arbitrary” selection of ad hoc judges.

Barrister Gohar, the chairman of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), declared on Thursday that the government would collapse if the PTI was outlawed.

After attending the PTI and Sunni-Ittehad Council (SIC) joint parliamentary party meeting, the PTI chief, along with PTI leaders Omar Ayub Khan, Shibli Faraz, and Asad Qaiser, spoke to the media. They announced that they would petition the Supreme Judicial Council (SJC) to stop the appointment of ad hoc judges to the highest court.

Since the PTI is widespread throughout the nation, he claimed that it represents 70% of Pakistanis and that it shouldn’t be treated unfairly in any setting.

The PTI head attacked the plan to nominate four ad hoc judges to the supreme court, claiming that doing so will undermine the judiciary’s independence.

“This choice is motivated by bad intentions. This is the moment to hear the rulings of the SC, not to make such choices. He stressed, “We demand that the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) release our notifications immediately.

Moreover, Omar Ayub Khan, the leader of the opposition in the National Assembly, blasted the Chief Justice of Pakistan for appointing judges who share his views and urged the CJP to refrain from assigning the PTI’s cases to ad hoc judges.

Additionally, Senate Opposition Leader Shibli Faraz criticised the government for fabricating accusations against Bushra Bibi and Imran Khan.

Asad Qaiser, a former speaker of the NA, stated that Nawaz Sharif intended to leave the country for London, but he insisted that the former prime minister should apologise to the people before leaving this time. Additionally, he asked the administration to follow the constitution rather than enforcing anarchy throughout the nation.

A party may be banned by the government under Article 17: Sana Rana

Article 17 of the Constitution, according to PML-N senior leader Rana Sanullah Khan, gives the government the authority to declare a political party illegal.

During an appearance on a TV talk show, Sanaullah stated that the Supreme Court will review a decree banning a political party within 15 days of the cabinet’s approval.

Sanaullah stated that the government had just so far stated its intentions about the PTI’s prohibition, but that “a ban is imposed on that party if the apex court agrees to the declaration.”
The constitutional procedure will be followed, he said, whenever the administration makes a decision.

Like the PTI, the former minister remarked, the government has the right to voice its opinions and work towards achievement.

“There is no harm in making efforts if the government has an option to get the reserved seats through constitutional means,” he said.
