Imran Khan, the former prime minister was injured in a gun attack in Pakistan
Former Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan was injured Thursday after an unidentified assailant opened fire at a rally, according to an official from Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party.
The bullet hit Khan in the leg, said senior PTI leader Asad Umar.
The former Pakistan cricket captain was taken from the rally site outside the city of Gujranwala to seek treatment in Lahore. At least three people were wounded by gunfire. The extent of the other injuries is not yet known.
On October 21, the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) recommended that Khan be disqualified from holding political office for five years, likely to further inflame political tensions in the country.
While reading out the order, ECP chief Sikandar Sultan Raja announced that Khan had been disqualified for engaging in “corrupt activities”.
The commission said its decision was based on the grounds that Khan had “made false statements” regarding the sale of gifts sent to him by the leaders of Saudi Arabia and Dubai during his tenure, which is illegal under the country’s constitution. .
This is a breakthrough story. More details to follow.
