Assassination attempt at Imran Khan was carried out from 3 sites: Probe team

Pakistan’s Joint Investigation Team (JIT) probing the assassination attempt on former Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan found that the firing was done from three different places, Dawn reported.

The JIT constituted by the Punjab government found that Imran Khan was hit by three bullets on a container-mounted truck during PTI’s Azadi March in Wazirabad.

Additional IG Ghulam Mehmood Dogar, head of the JIT team headed by a Lahore Capital City Police officer, said, “The JIT in its findings claimed that three bullets were fired at Imran Khan on a container-mounted truck during PTI’s independence. Wazirabad March in”.

He said that the findings of the JIT are almost complete and a report will be issued soon after receiving some pending reports from the Punjab Forensic Science Agency (PFSA).

Responding to a question, an official source said the JIT’s findings confirmed that no injuries were reported from the official weapons of the policemen deployed at the rally site in Wazirabad. Forensic analysis of all official weapons of police personnel was carried out by the PFSA. He said that the JIT also observed some mismanagement with regard to security arrangements at the PTI march in Wazirabad.
