The court acquitted the accused on the grounds that the prosecution failed to establish a case against the him, The Express Tribune reported.
Former Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has criticised the Pakistan Democratic Movement-led government for “pushing the nation towards terror incidents.” He made the remarks during a consultative meeting attended by the party’s senior leadership and Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid’s leader Moonis Elahi.
“The imposed, corrupt and incompetent rulers are pushing the nation towards [terror] incidents,” The News International quoted Imran Khan as saying. Imran Khan has criticized Pakistan Peoples Party Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari and Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on national security. His statement regarding terrorism comes at a time when Pakistan is witnessing an increase in terror attacks, particularly in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan.
“Leaving national security at the mercy of [Asif] Zardari’s politically-immature son is criminal stupidity,” The News International quoted Imran Khan as saying.
As per The News International report, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa has been witnessing hostage situations in Bannu’s Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD). Furthermore, cross-border attacks and bombings have been seen in Balochistan.
Criticizing the incumbent government, Khan told them to stop benefiting from the National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRS) and called for snap elections, according to The News International. He emphasised that only a government with a public mandate can handle Pakistan’s economy.
“Only a government with a public mandate will be able to manage the economy,” Imran Khan said.
“I had forewarned about the consequences of the conspiracy imposed on foreign signals. After the economy’s destruction, the nation is asking that on whose behest is internal chaos being fuelled,” he added.
