On Thursday, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif asked the Interior Ministry to ensure the safety of former Prime Minister and PTI Chairman Imran Khan, according to a statement.
According to sources, former Pakistani prime minister Imran Khan is under fear of death.
After receiving a letter from the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leadership on Wednesday alleging security risks ahead of tomorrow’s public gathering at Minar-e-Pakistan, Deputy Commissioner Lahore wrote to the PTI leadership.
In light of security concerns, Imran Khan was urged to deliver his speech at the public rally via video link, according to a letter from the DC to the PTI leadership.
According to the instructions of Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, the Interior Ministry wrote a letter to the relevant authorities requesting that former Prime Minister Imran Khan be given flawless protection.
The Interior Ministry has addressed an urgent letter to the Home Secretaries of the four provinces, as well as the Home Secretaries of Azad Kashmir and Gilgit Baltistan, requesting that they implement rigorous security measures for Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf head Imran Khan.
To the Inspector General of Police and to the Chief Commissioner of Islamabad, the identical direction was given.
PM Shehbaz Sharif has also asked Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah to personally monitor the situation and see that the orders are carried out.
When Imran Khan appears at public rallies and other events, the letter instructs security personnel to put in place foolproof protection arrangements for him.
The letter also emphasised the deployment of a bomb disposal squad outside the former prime minister’s mansion in Bani Gala, which was mentioned in the letter.
In a letter to the relevant authorities, it was made clear that there would be no tolerance for laxity when it came to security measures, particularly during Imran Khan’s public appearances and meetings.
We should highlight here that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) will organise a public rally at Minar-e-Pakistan in Lahore. Imran Khan will deliver a speech at the public event.
On Tuesday, Imran Khan, the chairman of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, called on the people to gather to Minar-e-Pakistan on Thursday (April 21) to demonstrate their support for a free and independent Pakistan.
