Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has decided to file a petition in Supreme Court (SC) for the registration of an FIR over the gun attack on party chief Imran Khan in Wazirabad.

PTI central leader Fawad Chaudhry said that a petition will be filed in the SC Peshawar Registry on Monday (today) for the registration of an FIR against the gun attack on Imran Khan. He said that all provincial and national lawmakers of PTI will submit the petition in the top court. He lamented that the FIR has not been registered as yet despite the passage of a week. Fawad added that the political party will seek the SC’s attention towards the non-registration of the FIR after the assassination attempt on Imran Khan during the PTI’s long march in which one person was killed and 13 others sustained injuries.

The PTI leader claimed that the police refused to lodge an FIR after being pressured by the government. PTI’s provincial minister Shaukat Yousafzai said in a statement that a petition will be filed in the SC to seek the attention of the chief justice on the gun attack on Imran Khan, senior journalist Arshad Sharif’s assassination and inhumane conduct with the PTI Senator Azam Swati. Shaukat Yousafzai said that the plea will be submitted to the SC Peshawar Registry at 10:00 pm on Monday. He added that all PTI lawmakers were directed to reach the apex court’s Peshawar Registry. Yousafzai said that the chief justice will be appealed to take notice on the incidents. He added all lawmakers will sign the petition for holding a high-level probe.
