The man who opened fire on the PTI during its long march claimed he intended to assassinate former Prime Minister Imran Khan because "he was deceiving the nation."

Imran Khan, a former Pakistani prime minister, believes that the attack on him, in which bullets were fired, was carried out on the orders of three people, including Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, the nation’s interior minister, and a top ISI general. His remarks were based on information he had received, according to senior Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leaders on Thursday.

“Imran Khan asked us to make this announcement on his behalf just a short while ago. He believes that this was carried out under the direction of Shehbaz Sharif, Rana Sanaullah, and Maj Gen Faisal. He claimed to be getting intelligence and is basing his statement on it “Asad Umar and Mian Aslam Iqbal, leaders of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), stated.

The Director General (C) ISI is Major General Faisal Naseer, while the Interior Minister of Pakistan is Rana Sanaullah.

Imran Khan’s condition is steady, according to the PTI officials, and he is not in danger.

In a video that the party broadcast, PTI general secretary Asad Umar stated that “the three persons should be dismissed from their jobs.”

“I spoke with Imran Khan because we were getting reports that he was in danger. But he advised that we leave this up to Allah. These three individuals were to be fired, according to Imran Khan. We’re waiting for Imran Khan’s approval. Protests across the nation will take place if these individuals are not removed “he said.

“Imran Khan received a leg shot. His CT scan was performed. Since Imran Khan repeatedly stated that he would give his life to ensure our country’s freedom, any lingering doubts should have been put to rest today “he added.

According to media sources, the suspect who was apprehended by police in Pakistan after opening fire during the PTI’s long march claimed he intended to assassinate former Prime Minister Imran Khan because “he was deceiving the public.”

During his lengthy march against the governing coalition in Wazirabad, Punjab region of Pakistan, Imran Khan was hurt in a shooting incident close to his container, according to the local media source.

The gunman said, “Imran Khan was deceiving people and I could not take it therefore I attempted to murder him. I tried shooting just Imran Khan and no one else,” when the police questioned him about his motivation for the crime.

In a video posted on social media, the shooter is heard saying, “I conspired against Imran Khan from the day he kicked off his long march from Lahore. I made up my mind that I will not leave him alive. There was Azaan going on and on the other side, Imran Khan is taking out his container and making noise. My conscience did not approve of this. I decided this suddenly.”

When asked if anybody else was engaged in the plot, the gunman responded, “There is no one else involved; I am the only one who has devised this. I rode my bike here and left it at my uncle’s business. He has a showroom for motorcycles.”

Seven people were hurt and one person died as a result of the shooting, according to the Punjab police. According to the authorities, Muazzam Nawaz has been named as the victim, according to a daily publication.

Marriyum Aurangzeb, the minister of information for Pakistan, has instructed the Punjab police to promptly secure the crime site and lock Imran Khan’s container in order to conduct an inquiry.

Nawaz Sharif, the leader of the PML-N, also denounced the shooting incident involving PTI leader Imran Khan and party members.

Earlier, according to media sources, Senator Faisal Javed Khan of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), who was hurt in “the fire incident” near the container carrying Imran Khan during the long march, said it was an “assassination attempt” on the former Pakistan Prime Minister.

Shehbaz Sharif, the prime minister of Pakistan, requested a report from the interior minister. Additionally, he gave the Interior Minister the order to get a report from the Chief Secretary and IGP of Punjab.

Imran Khan began his long march toward Islamabad last week and had accused the nation’s intelligence head of having a “political presser.” A couple more policemen were also in his crosshairs.
