 Probe Army Officer’s Role In Attack: Imran To Pak Chief Justice

As Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf’s (PTI) long march resumed after a week from Wazirabad, party chairman Imran Khan addressed the participants from his Lahore residence through a video link, reiterating his accusation that a senior army officer was behind his attempted assassination. He said “army officer Maj. Gen. Faisal Naseer masterminded and monitored my assassination plan” and demanded that the chief justice of Pakistan investigate and uphold justice. Khan urged the top judge to probe how a former prime minister could not get a first information report (FIR) registered wherein he had accused an army officer among three suspects behind the plot to kill him, reports Dawn. Asking whether Maj. Gen. Naseer was above the law, he said the chief of the military’s media wing had termed his claims an insult to the institution of the armed forces. “This institution will be insulted when it will not take action against a suspect or consider itself above the law of the land,” he remarked. “If an ex-PM is not able to get an FIR registered as per his information then one can imagine what will happen to a common man in Pakistan.”
