Imran Khan Claims
Imran accused Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah of being involved in the “Model Town massacre” and extrajudicial killings.
“Killing is not new for them. As for the military intelligence guy, they were in cahoots,” he added. The PTI chairman said the “intelligence guy” was known for and had a background of “bumping off people”.
Imran also claimed that he would be able to provide all the circumstantial evidence for his claims to an investigation. “Whenever there is an independent investigation, these three will be [found] involved,” he added.
