ISLAMABAD, Pakistan – Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Mohsin Shahnawaz Ranjha on Saturday registered a case of “attempted murder” against ousted prime minister Imran Khan, according to sources.

This came a day after Ranjha was attacked outside the Election Commission of Pakistan’s (ECP) office in Islamabad, where PTI supporters were protesting disqualification of Khan in the Toshakhana case.

The case has been registered at the Secretariat police station in Islamabad, reported Geo TV.

In the First Information Report (FIR), Ranjha mentioned that he was attacked when he appeared as a plaintiff in the Toshakhana case at the commission.

As he stepped outside the ECP, the PML-N leader was attacked with the “intention of murder” at the “behest of PTI leadership”, reported Geo TV quoting the FIR. He alleged that attempts were made to break into his car by smashing its glass.

The FIR also said that the Sri Nagar Highway was blocked at the behest of the PTI leadership during which the party’s workers vandalised and pelted stones.




On Friday, the Pakistan’s election commission disqualified ousted Prime Minister Imran Khan from being a member of parliament, after finding him guilty of “corrupt practices” in a unanimous decision.

Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party immediately rejected Friday’s ruling, challenging the commission’s jurisdiction of delivering such a verdict, as Aljazeera reported. It said it would file an appeal to the Islamabad High Court and called on supporters to take to the streets.

Speaking to reporters after the verdict, PTI leader Fawad Chaudhry called the commission’s decision “embarrassing” and a “slap in the face” of Pakistan’s people.

“This verdict is not an attack on Imran Khan only. It is an attack on Pakistan’s constitution and its people,” he said, as Aljazeera wrote.

In April, Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan was ousted from power after losing a no-confidence vote in his leadership, where the opposition parties brought a motion against him for bad governance and economic mismanagement.
