Conspiracy being hatched to create discord between PTI and army: Imran Khan

Islamabad (Web Desk): PTI chairman and former prime minister Imran Khan on Wednesday accused the PML-N-led coalition government of attempting to create discord between the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and the army.

“They have prepared a plan to crush the PTI,” Imran Khan said in an address to supporters. PTI chief said the top brass of the ruling coalition, including Nawaz Sharif, Maryam Nawaz, Asif Ali Zardari and Maulana Fazlur Rehman had been criticising the army until the recent past. But no action was taken against them.

A court in the federal capital on Wednesday granted a two-day physical remand of PTI leader Shahbaz Gill in a treason case.

Police presented Gill before the court amid strict security arrangements.

During the court proceedings, police requested a remand of the PTI leader, stating that they still need to recover Gill’s mobile phone and the device he used to make the statements he was arrested for.

The court initially reserved its judgement on the police’s application but later granted them two-day physical remand of the PTI leader.

Gill, who is PTI chief Imran Khan’s chief of staff, was arrested from Banigala Chowk on Tuesday.

Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah on Tuesday had confirmed that the case against Gill was registered at the Kohsar police station on the complaint of Magistrate Ghulam Murtaza Chandio under Sections 34 (common intention), 109 (abetment), 120 (concealing design to commit offence punishable with imprisonment), 121 (waging war against state), 124-A (sedition), 131 (abetting mutiny, or attempt to seduce a soldier, sailor or airman from his duty), 153 (provoking to cause riot), 505 (statement conducing to public mischief) and 506 (punishment for criminal intimidation) of the Pakistan Penal Code.
