Unidentified assailants on Thursday opened fire on container-mounted-truck carrying former Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan during his rally in eastern Punjab province. Imran Khan sustained bullet injuries on his leg during the attack, but he is safe, Geo TV reported.
He has been rushed to a hospital.
The attack happened in the Wazirabad district in the eastern Punjab province. Khan was traveling in a large convoy of trucks and cars heading towards the capital, Islamabad, as part of his campaign aimed at forcing the government to hold early elections.
“Imran Khan is injured, may Allah protect him, the whole nation should pray for the life of Imran Khan,” PTI’s Farrukh Habib said on Twitter.
