Meanwhile, PTI leader Shehbaz Gill has asserted that the party had pointed out several times that Imran Khan’s life is in danger.
“In this regard, we have informed all relevant agencies, including the government,” he added.
Shehbaz Gill claimed: “An employee – who cleans the former premier’s room – was paid to install a spy device,” terming the act ‘ heinous and unfortunate’.
“Our people are being threatened to get information.
Such shameful acts should be avoided,” he added. The PTI leader further said that the ‘arrested’ employee has made several revelations – which he refused to share at the moment.
Earlier on June 23, Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah rejected the claims of life ‘threats’ to former prime minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan.
Talking to a private news channel, the Interior Minister said that there was no threat alert against Imran Khan, adding that Imran Khan was being offered security and protocol at the same level he enjoyed while he was the prime minister.
