Lahore: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan has expressed the fear that those who want him dead may try again as he said that the ‘true’ attacker was still at large.
He said this on Thursday in an interview to French news outlet France24.
In the interview, he said that his attackers may still feel that the job is not done, which is why he is now taking precautionary measures.
“They think that the only way to get me out of the way is actually [to] eliminate me. So I think that there is a threat, still,” he said.
Imran reiterated his accusation that Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah and a senior military official as being responsible for the November 3 Wazirabad attack because they feel threatened by him.
The former prime minister added that the suspect apprehended soon after the attack in Wazirabad was just a ‘decoy’ the divert attention away from the real attacker who remains at large.
He contested the official view that there was just a single attacker by maintaining that he was shot at from two separate directions pointing to the presence of two attackers.
Imran reiterated that he only trusts an investigation helmed by the chief justice of the Supreme Court to hold transparent investigations into the attack. He argued that any other investigation, especially one involving the country’s powerful intelligence agencies could be influenced or tainted by the federal government.
Despite the lingering threat, following which a bulletproof cubicle was erected atop his principle container, Imran vowed to rejoin his party’s march in person when it reaches Rawalpindi later this month.
On his recent climbdown from accusations that the US were involved in an international conspiracy with the government coalition to engineer a surprising vote of no-confidence loss that effectively ended his government, Imran said he still accuses Washington of having played a key role.
Despite that, Imran maintained that he did not wish to go against the interests of the people of Pakistan by antagonizing a global superpower.
