Imran Khan, who used to be Pakistan’s prime minister, says that three bullets were removed from his right leg when he was shot last week.
Khan was shot at a political rally in Gujranwala on Thursday. His party said the shooting was an attempt to kill him.
Becky Anderson of CNN was interviewed. “They Took Out Three Bullets From My Right Leg,” Khan stated on Monday. The left had some shrapnel that was left inside.
Khan stated that his bone has been damaged and that his leg is in a cast, and that he will be able to resume normal activity in four to six weeks.
Khan said that intelligence agencies told him that the shooting that hurt him last week would happen. He said this from his home in Zaman Park, Lahore.
When Anderson asked Khan on Monday what information he had been given about the incident and who had given it to him, Khan responded, “Remember, three and a half years I was in power.” I have contacts with the various intelligence agencies that operate.
How did I obtain this information? From Inside Intelligence Agencies Why? “Because the majority of people are shocked by what is happening in this country.”
Last week, the Pakistani Intelligence Agency stated that it had communicated with Khan “about the threat” prior to the rally. “The Organization Had Already Sensitized The Federal Government About The Threat To The Former Prime Minister, Who Had Communicated This To The Punjab Provincial Government,” said Inter-Services Intelligence (Isi) in a statement.
The Isi also said that Khan’s security was in charge of Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (Pti) Party, which runs the Punjab Provincial Government.
Last Friday, Khan said that people in power were trying to kill him. Both government and security officials denied this claim.
“They Are In That Speech As The Events Unfold.” How Could This Happen? How Could A Religious Fanatic Kill Me In The Name Of Blasphemy And They Blame It On Him? “All of this is in my speech, which I put on television, and it’s on social media,” he said, referring to a speech he gave on September 24, in which he said he laid out how the events of the shooting would unfold.
When asked about critics’ claims that blaming the current government for the attack would help Khan get back in power, he said, “I don’t need any reason to blame this government for me to get back in power.” He also said that his Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (Pti) Party has stayed popular since he was kicked out of office in April.
“They did everything they could to get me out of the way.” “This was planned after that didn’t happen,” he added.
One person was killed and several others were injured in Thursday’s attack, while Khan was taken to a hospital in Lahore for treatment after the shooting. Speaking from the hospital on Friday, Khan blamed Prime Minister Shebaz Sharif, Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah, and Maj. Gen. Faisal, a senior intelligence official, without providing evidence. CNN is seeking comment from the three men.
At a news conference last week, Pakistan’s Ministry of Information and Broadcasting denied Khan’s allegations against Sharif and Sanaullah.
Pakistan’s military has also reacted angrily to Khan’s claims, calling them “baseless and irresponsible” as well as “absolutely unacceptable and uncalled for.” In a statement released Friday night, the Inter-Services Public Relations (Ispr) called Khan’s accusations against the military and military officials “highly regrettable and strongly condemned.”
The statement says, “The Pakistan Army is proud to be a very professional and well-disciplined organisation with a strong and highly effective internal accountability system for any illegal acts committed by uniformed personnel.”
“However, if the honour, safety, and prestige of its rank and file are being ruined by vested interests through frivolous allegations, the institution will jealously safeguard its officers and soldiers no matter what,” it went on.
Earlier on Monday that Khan wrote a letter to Pakistani President Arif Alvi in which he said that since his government was overthrown in April, his party has been facing “an ever-increasing number of false allegations, harassment, arrests, and torture in custody.”
