The life of Pakistan's Prime Minister Imran Khan is in danger. Pakistan's Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry said on Friday that intelligence agencies have reported a conspiracy to assassinate Prime Minister Imran Khan. The minister tweeted that Khan’s security was increased in accordance with the government’s decision following the intelligence reports.
سیکیورٹی ایجنسیوں نے رپورٹ کیا ہے کہ وزیر اعظم عمران خان پر قاتلانہ حملےکا منصوبہ سامنے آیا ہے، ان رپورٹس کے بعد حکومتی فیصلے کے مطابق وزیر اعظم کی سیکیورٹی میں اضافہ کر دیا گیا ہے۔— Ch Fawad Hussain (@fawadchaudhry) April 1, 2022
A similar claim was made in a live TV show earlier this week by Faisal Vawda, a politician of Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party. Vawda said the plot was linked to a “secretive” memo that the government had received. “There isn’t just one letter, there are several letters,” he said.
He, however, did not reveal if the purported conspiracy to assassinate the premier was mentioned in the letter. Vawda also said that Khan was told multiple times that bulletproof glass needed to be installed before his dais at the March 27 rally but he refused.
