ISLAMABAD, PAKISTAN — Pakistan’s former prime minister Imran Khan has said that former army chief Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa had planned his murder to impose a state of emergency in the country.
Khan, who also heads PTI, allegedly made the shocking claim while speaking with a media team in Lahore. Syed Khawar Abbas, the head of Bol’s Lahore bureau, cited Imran Khan as having stated in the interview that he would make “further revelations” regarding the attempt on his life in Wazirabad during his news conference on Thursday.
Abbas reported that the former prime minister claimed he received advice from several people to stop making accusations against the former army head.
The former prime minister, according to Abbas, claimed he had received advice from a number of people to cease making accusations against the former army chief because he had retired, but he was unable to do so because of “the crimes that Gen. Bajwa had perpetrated.”
Imran Khan pushed for the filing of a FIR regarding the attempt on his life and named those who he believed were responsible for the murder conspiracy, asking the courts to take suo motu notice of the matter.
Additionally, he informed the press that after his health healed, he would visit the nation.
