Pakistan: The troubles of former Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan are not taking the name of lessening. A case of attempt to murder has been registered against him on Saturday. This case against Imran Khan has been filed by Mohsin Shahnawaz Ranjha, leader of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) party, which is part of the ruling coalition. A case has been registered at the Secretariat police station in Islamabad. Earlier on Friday, Imran Khan was disqualified by the Election Commission for 5 years.

National Assembly member Mohsin Shahnawaz Ranjha has taken this step after the attack on him on Friday. In fact, supporters of Imran Khan and his party PTI in Islamabad were protesting against the decision to disqualify Imran Khan in the Toshakhana case. Meanwhile, when Ranjha came out of the Election Commission office, his supporters attacked him. And during the violence, his car was also badly damaged.

Ranjha told in the FIR that he had appeared as a plaintiff before the commission in the Toshakhana case. They were attacked for this. As soon as Ranjha stepped out of the ECP, he was attacked with ‘murder intent’ at the behest of the PTI leadership. He said his car was also attacked and attempts were made to break in by breaking the glass.

Earlier, two terrorism-related cases were registered against Imran Khan, secretary-general Asad Umar and 100 other party workers for alleged violence during the protests. The cases were reportedly registered on the federal government and police’s complaints.

The cricketer-politician Imran Khan was accused of misusing his 2018-2022 premiership to purchase and sell gifts in state possession that were received during visits abroad and worth more than 140 million Pakistani rupees ($635,000). This has sparked massive protests by PTI supporters across the country. Meanwhile, Khan also filed an appeal challenging the decision before the Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Saturday, Pakistan media reported.
