PTI rejects FIR of attack on Imran Khan as ‘mockery of SC order’
The PTI leaders have rejected the FIR of attack on PTI chairman Imran Khan and called it a “mockery of the law and the Supreme court’s order.”
Taking to twitter, PTI leader Farrukh Habib said that by releasing two different video statements of the arrested suspect, ‘someone’ tried to give a religious touch to cover the assassination attack and now police has made plaintiff in the FIR.
“The whole system has been exposed,” he added.
He questioned the credibility of the Punjab Police, saying they are unable to do justice in this case.
In addition, PTI leader Hammad Azhar said that the three persons named by Imran Khan were missing from the FIR.
He also discredited the FIR and said the FIR should be re-named “NRO”.
PTI leader Shireen Mazari held the FIR as an “attempt at a complete cover up by the three accused through the power of their positions and the state”.
Former PTI lawmaker Maleeka Ali Bokhari also set aside the FIR as ‘unacceptable’ and declared it a mockery of justice.
