‘They will fail’: Imran Khan claims ‘four people’ plotting to assassinate him

  • Former PM and PTI Chairman Imran Khan addresses a jalsa in Mianwali.
  • He says will release audio containing four names if something happens.
  • “The people making plans against me will fail,” PTI chairman adds.

MIANWALI: PTI Chairman Imran Khan claimed Friday that four people were planning to assassinate him, and if something happens to him, he would release their names.

“The tape, which includes the names of four people, will be released if something happens to me,” the former prime minister — who is embroiled in the recent audio leaks controversy — said while addressing a jalsa in Mianwali.

This is not the first time that the PTI chairman has claimed that his life is under threat, as after his ouster from the Prime Minister’s Office, Khan and his party’s leaders have time and again stated that plans were being hatched to assassinate him.

In light of the threats to him, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif had also ordered to beef up the security given to his predecessor, following which nearly 100 police personnel were provided to keep Khan safe.

Without providing the names of the people planning to have him killed, Khan told today’s jalsa that if he were to be assassinated, then the people behind the plot will claim that a “religious fanatic has killed me”.

“The people making plans against me will fail,” the PTI chairman said, who has been at loggerheads with the incumbent government and plans to hold a long march seeking to oust the rulers from office.

Hinting that his party workers and leaders would not heed the government’s threats of putting them behind bars and thwarting his “Azadi March”, Khan said: “We are planning to start a ‘fill the jail campaign’.”

The PTI chairman added that the incumbent rulers were appointing their “own people” to the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) and the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).

Providing the reason behind the appointments, the former prime minister said that the rulers wanted to have their corruption cases disposed of.

Khan added that since the government was “facing defeat” at every front, it was leaking “fake” audios.

The audio leaks saga has been making the headlines in recent days and they are not only restricted to Khan’s PTI, but soundbites of government officials — including Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif — have also been leaked.

Information suggests that court magistrate Malik Muhammad Imran exonerated Imran Khan, Shah Mehmood Qureshi, and Sheikh Rasheed, the chief of AML, in addition to announcing the reserved verdict.

Acquittal of Sadaqat Abbasi and Ali Nawaz Awan from the Azadi March case was also ordered by the court.

It should be mentioned that numerous prominent members of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), like as Shah Mahmood Qureshi, former prime minister Imran Khan, and others, were apprehended by the police in separate complaint letters pertaining to the Azadi March.

Following unrest between police and the PTI leader in the provincial capital, 42 charges were filed against PTI senior leaders and workers for agitation.

The Islamabad High Court (IHC) had previously found former prime minister Imran Khan and PTI leader Shah Mehmood Qureshi not guilty in a case involving ciphers.

Decisions on appeals from the cipher case’s conviction were announced by Chief Justice Aamir Farooq and Justice Miangul Hassan Aurangzeb of the IHC.

The party’s vice-chairman and founder, who was convicted in a similar case in January of this year, received 10-year prison sentences apiece.

On the other hand, Qureshi’s arrest in the crimes that occurred on May 9th and Imran’s sentences in the Toshakhana and Iddat cases mean that they are unlikely to be released from prison anytime soon.
