Imran Khan Expresses Concern Over Potential Assassination Attempt in Jail

Imran Khan, the former Prime Minister of Pakistan, has voiced concerns about his safety while incarcerated in Adiala Jail in Rawalpindi. He believes that there may be another attempt on his life, possibly through “slow poisoning,” as a result of his refusal to leave the country.

This claim comes following a special court’s indictment of Imran Khan and his close ally, former Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi, in the Cipher case. Khan alleges that all the cases against him are baseless and politically motivated, designed to keep him in jail until after the elections or possibly even longer.

Imran Khan also accuses powerful elements in Pakistan of orchestrating a conspiracy against him, likening it to a London agreement signed between a fugitive (possibly referring to Nawaz Sharif) and elements in the military establishment. He suggests that allowing a convicted criminal to return to politics with a clean slate would require undermining state institutions, leading to a collapse of the justice system.

Despite these challenges, Khan expresses determination to continue his political struggle, encouraging his supporters to fight for their rights and the freedom of their country. He has directed his lawyers and party officials to organize conventions throughout the country and initiate campaigns for future elections.

Earlier in the year, Imran Khan claimed that a third assassination attempt had been plotted against him, and he sought to have all political cases against him quashed, citing concerns for his safety due to regular court appearances. This statement came after he survived a gun attack on his rally in Wazirabad in November 2022, where he sustained bullet injuries to his leg.
