Imran Khan says his lawyers to give position on ‘farcical FIR’

Islamabad (Web Desk): PTI chairman Imran Khan said on Tuesday that his lawyers would give his position on the First Information Report (FIR) against the Wazirabad incident.

“On the issue of the farcical FIR my lawyers will give my position,” Imran Khan said in a tweet and added, “All my life I dreamt of seeing my country as a prospering welfare state & my struggle throughout has been to make this dream a reality for my nation.” “Today the nation has awakened, understood & risen,” the former maintained.

After the Supreme Court of Pakistan warned that it would initiate suo motu proceedings, the Punjab police registered a First Information Report (FIR) for the assassination attempt on former prime minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan in Wazirabad.

The FIR lodged on the complaint of Sub-Inspector Amir Shahzad at 11:10pm on Monday under Section 7 of the Anti-Terrorism Act, and Section 302, 324, and 440 of the Pakistan Penal Code was registered after a delay of three days.

Prime suspect Naveed, who was arrested from the spot, has been nominated in the case registered under various charges including terrorism, murder, attempt to murder and planning to kill someone.

Zubair Niazi, a relative of Imran Khan and general-secretary of PTI Lahore chapter, had lodged a complaint before the relevant station house officer (SHO) to register FIR against the prime minister, interior minister and a senior military officer named by Imran as suspects in the failed assassination attempt.

However, the FIR has been registered on the complaint of the sub-inspector police and the three top officials cited by the PTI chief have not been nominated in the case.

The top court on Monday issued a 24-hour ultimatum to Punjab Inspector General of Police (IGP) Faisal Shahkar to register a case of Wazirabad incident.

On Novermner 3, Imran Khan and several party members were injured while a party activist was killed in firing incident at former premier's container during his “Azadi March” in Wazirabad.

PTI Senator Faisal Javed, party leaders Umar Dar and Ahmed Chattah, were also among the people injured in the incident while a citizen, identified as 42-year-old Moazzam, died on the spot.
