Wazirabad attack: Imran Khan says JIT members ‘being pressurised’ to distance themselves from findings

PTI chairman Imran Khan on Tuesday said members of the joint investigation team (JIT) probing the Nov 3 attack on him in Wazirabad were being “pressurised to distance themselves” from the findings of the case, which confirmed his “conviction that powerful quarters were behind the assassination attempt”.
Last year, a PTI worker died and 14 others, including the former prime minister and PTI leaders, were injured in the attack at Wazirabad’s Allahwala Chowk, where the party’s “Haqeeqi Azadi”’ march against the federal government had stopped on its way to Islamabad.
To probe the incident, the Punjab government constituted a JIT. Last week, the team reportedly found that the attack was carried out from three different shooting sites.
An official privy to the findings earlier told Dawn that shots were fired by “three unknown shooters, from unknown weapons” from a considerable height other than the gun attack carried out by the suspect, Naveed Meher, arrested from the spot.
In a tweet today, the PTI chief said: “As per media reports, JIT members are being pressurised to distance themselves from the findings of JIT investigating assassination plot against me.
“This further confirms my conviction that powerful quarters were behind the assassination attempt on me.”


Imran has repeatedly insisted that three shooters were involved in the attack on him.
Most recently, in an address on Jan 5, he said that “two to three people” were behind the plot to assassinate him. “I know that the country’s armed forces are giving sacrifices for the country […] but there are black sheep in every institution.
“But the person who planned this, I want them to cooperate with the JIT. Action should be taken against those deliberately obstructing justice.”
The ousted premier also called for a “powerful” body backed by the chief justice of Pakistan to probe the incident.
Without taking names, Imran said that “an institution” working under the federal government had refused to conduct a forensic analysis of a mobile phone forwarded by the JIT.
On the other hand, the federal government has rejected Imran’s claims.
In a press conference last week, Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah said that there was no second or third suspect involved in the incident other than the arrested suspect.
He also said that the PTI could conduct as many investigations as it desired but would not be able to “insert a second or third suspect”.

One day if anyone would ever able to succeed knowing the real face of this so called military establishment, you will be surprised to know that they were part of every single crime, every single murder, every corruption deal, every terrorist attack in Pakistan since 1947.

Hamood ur Rehman report, Abbotabad raid report have yet to be released.

You think anyone is serious about this JIT report and apprehending the culprits? These moves precisely give Pakistan a reputation of a banana republic.

The Estab. is playing dirty deceitful games as they can't help it.

-They are posturing to PPP/Zardari that they want Bilawal to take the lead role and he is the future PM of Pakistan in waiting.

-They are supporting PDM crooks and giving a message that Estab. is fully behind them even if the country is ruined.

- They are regrouping MQM factions and giving the message they are behind them.

- They are engaging with PTI, IK through backdoor, their men, and deceiving IK that elections will be held, the Bajwa doctrine has changed, gone Apolitical, and all the lies being told.

In reality the Mil Establishment just want a total control of the country for itself, a complete hegemon just as for the last 75 years and using diff. political parties as pawns to further their cause.

Can't understand why pti did not call country wide protests and strikes when IK was shot at???
Leadership after IK seriously lack initiative. IK was undergoing treatment, rest of the central leadership did not give a call to protest and stop the country.
اسٹیبلشمنٹ نے دیکھا یہ تو بس نیک پروین ہیں،
اور مارو۔
Establishment has no mercy, their strategic objective is to keep the boot on the neck of people and do whatever it takes to keep people pinned down to the ground.

Phir bolte hai humey gaaliya kyo parti hai.

How about withdraw from politics altogether and slash your budget by 30%. Wait for 3 months, I am sure the public will respect you.

But yeah, keep pushing.

That would mean a struggle for Imran Khan. The narrative is people vs the corrupt system of Pakistan.
