Lahore: Pakistan’s former Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that he would not have survived if the two shooters he saw had “synchronized” their attack on him.
In his first public address since he was shot during a protest march in the eastern city of Wazirabad, Khan spoke as he sat in a wheelchair at a hospital here, BBC reported.
“Because I fell, one of the shooters thought I had died, and left,” he said.
Last month, Pakistan’s Election Commission disqualified Khan from holding public office, in a case described by the former star cricketer as politically motivated.
In a video confession released by police, one man accused of shooting him said the former cricketer was “misguiding” the people and that he “wanted to kill him” for doing so. The conditions under which the confession was carried out are unclear.
