Army snubs Imran Khan once again, terms IK’s allegation of involvement of army officer in attack on Khan as baseless

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Army has, once again, snubbed Imran Khan and rejected IK’s allegation of an army officer’s involvement in an attempt to assassinate Khan during long-march in Wazirabad last Thursday.

On Friday night, Pakistan Army reacted to the allegations leveled by Imran Khan against the institution and a senior officer. Army has demanded of the federal government to investigate the attack and take a strict action against those who are playing with the integrity of the institution.

The Inter-Services Public Relations said that the military termed the allegations of PTI chairman as “baseless and irresponsible”.

“Allegations by PTI chairman against the institution and particularly a senior army officer are absolutely unacceptable and uncalled for,” the statement read.

A few days ago, DG ISI and DG ISPR held a maiden joint press conference and exposed lies and allegations of Imran Khan against army.

The ISPR further stated late Friday night, “Pakistan army takes pride for being a professional and disciplined organisation with a robust and highly effective internal accountability system applicable across the board for unlawful acts, if any, committed by uniformed personnel.”

It added that if at any point the ‘honor’, safety and prestige of its rank and file are tarnished by vested interests by leveling frivolous allegations, “the institution would jealousy safeguard its officers and soldiers no matter what.”

“The baseless allegations hurled at the institution / officials today are highly regrettable and strongly condemned,” ISPR said, adding that no one will be allowed to defame the institution or its soldiers with impunity.

The military requested the federal government to investigate the matter and “initiate legal action against those responsible for defamation and false accusations against the institution and its officials without any evidence whatsoever.”

In his video statement after being shot in Wazirabad, PTI chief asserted that a senior military official in Islamabad was trying to influence his party’s leaders and supporters apart from running a censorship campaign among other things to push the PTI chief out of politics.

Khan also blamed a serving army officer, PM Shehbaz Sharif and interior minister Rana Sanaullah as the masterminds of attempt on his life on Thursday.
