Court moved against Imran Khan for ‘nuking Pakistan’ statement

Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah says govt prepared to create judicial commission to probe ‘life threat’ to Imran Khan

A sessions court on Monday demanded a report from police on a plea pursuing registration of a case against former prime minister Imran Khan for his statement that “nuking Pakistan was better than giving power to thieves”.

A citizen, Sheikh Muzaffar, filed the petition imploring that the former prime minister’s statement was very insensitive and dangerous.

The petitioner said that his family was living in Pakistan and that their lives were in danger since Khan gave the statement. He said that he applied for filing a case with Islampura police against Imran Khan but the Station House Officer concerned declined from acting in accordance with law.

He called on the court to order the police to file a case against the former premier and put him on trial. The court then directed the police to lodge a case against the former PM and put him on trial.

In another development, Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah said the government was prepared to create a judicial commission to probe the life threats received by former prime minister Imran Khan.

After purported regime change conspiracy, the PTI chairman has repeatedly claimed that a “conspiracy” was being planned to assassinate him. During a rally on Sunday, Imran Khan claimed that he had been receiving the life threats. He said that he had recorded a video disclosing all those involved in the “conspiracy”, promising to release it in case anything happened to him.

Speaking on a talk show on a local news channel, Rana Sanaullah said that the government had provided Imran Khan prime minister’s level of security. He said that nearly 150-200 security personnel had been deployed for this purpose.
