‘Imran Khan attack, Arshad Sharif killing plot planned in London’

London (Web Desk): A man who claimed to be a spokesperson of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz has alleged that the conspiracy of attack on Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan and the murder of journalist Arshad Sharif was planned in London.

According to private TV channel, Tasneem Haider Shah, who said he was associated with the PML-N for the past 20 years, told a press conference that he had three meetings with PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif in the office of his son Hassan Nawaz, alleging that he was called to kill Arshad Sharif and Imran Khan.

Shah further claimed that the first meeting was held on July 8, the second on September 20 and the third on October 29. He added that he was told that Arshad Sharif and Imran Khan should be removed before the appointment of the new army chief.

He further alleged that Nawaz Sharif had told him that if he could provide the shooter, they [the PML-N] would give a place in Wazirabad and the blame would fall on the Punjab government. However, Shah added that he refused. Shah also said that the plot was reported to the British police.

However, Information Minister Marriyum Aurangzeb Sunday denied Tasneem Haider Shah’s claims of being a PML-N spokesperson in London calling the man a “PTI organiser in London”.
