Khadija Shah, main suspect of attack on Corps Commander house

Lahore police have declared Khadija Shah a main accused of attack on the Corps Commander residence (Jinnah House) in Lahore on May 9.

Some prominent political leaders including Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain demanded clemency for Khadija Shah.

However, military establishment outrightly rejected the demand saying they are pursuing a ‘zero tolerance’ police on May 9 attacks on army installations.

Khadija Shah kept on hiding here and there in Lahore for a week even after announcing that she will court arrest. But she did not surrender until the government and the army refused to forgive her in the May 9 attack on the Corps Commander House in Lahore.

According to police, Khadija Shah will be presented in an anti-terrorism court in Lahore to get her physical remand. Arrest of Khadija will enable police to get some important information about PTI leadership, planning of May 9 attacks, etc.

Through a video message, Khadija Shah denied her involvement in planning and facilitating an attack on Jinnah House, the residence of the Lahore Corps Commander.

She said that she was a supporter of Imran Khan and she just participated in the protests at Liberty and outside the Corps Commander House on May  9.

Importantly, the Punjab government has declared Khadija Shah a prime suspect in the attack on the Jinnah House in Lahore on May 9.

Khadija also said that she and Andleeb Abbas, a PTI woman leader, tried to stop the protesters from attacking the Corps Commander House, but a large crowd that gathered there became out of order.

Khadija Shah pointed out that her husband and father Dr Salman Shah have been arrested. She also claimed that police manhandled her husband in front of the servants of their family at the time of their arrest.

Khadija said, “I participated in the protests as a supporter of Imran Khan. I am neither a member of the PTI nor office bearer and just a supporter of the PTI chairman.”

The PTI supporter went on to say she did not violate any law or Constitution of the country and added that she participated in many PTI protests for the last of one year.

Khadija Shah further said that she was a dual citizen and trying to get help from the embassy.

“The Punjab government is trying to build a case on me that I am the prime suspect and mastermind of May 9 [vandalism],” she said while accusing the provincial authorities of victimisation.

“I am neither the office bearer nor a worker of the PTI. I protested in an individual capacity and being a supporter of Imran Khan,” she added.
