Mashal wrongly accused: Imran

Mashal wrongly accused: Imran

LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Thursday said that Abid Boxer committed target killings in fake encounters at the behest of Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif and the PTI would move court in this regard. He heaped praise on the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa police for arresting the suspects who killed Mashal Khan and said that he had not committed blasphemy.

Speaking to media personnel, the PTI chief hit out at former finance minister and close confidant of Nawaz Sharif, Ishaq Dar, demanding that he be arrested as soon as he came back to Pakistan. “Ishaq Dar should be placed in handcuffs as soon as he returns to the country,” said Imran.

“PML-N has given a ticket to a wanted person,” Imran said. He showered praise on the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa police and claimed that the force was not under pressure from anyone. “Khyber Pakhtunkhwa police operate without any pressure and work independently,” he said and added, “The whole world is showering praise on our police for the role it played in the Mashal Khan murder case." Imran Khan said that even if a PTI leader committed a felony, action should be taken against that person. “Khyber Pakhtunkhwa police solved the murder of Asma in Mardan,” he said and added, “Our police force also solved the murder of Mashal Khan.”

Imran said that Khyber Pakhtunkhwa police had not committed any extrajudicial killings. “Propaganda is being carried out against our police on purpose,” he said.

“Lies are also being propagated against our Billion Tree Tsunami project,” he added. The PTI chief showered praise on the apex court and said that his party stood with the Supreme Court of Pakistan. “The Supreme Court of Pakistan is working to establish the rule of law in Pakistan,” he said and added, “PTI stands with the judiciary since everyone is tired of the Sharif mafia,” Imran Khan said.
