Islamabad: Pakistan’s Opposition leader Imran Khan has been booked under terrorism act for allegedly inciting violence against Punjab’s former law minister Rana Sanaullah during a rally in Faisalabad.

The case was registered on Tuesday after Sanaullah said that Mr. Khan and other people incited the attack at his place after a person was killed in clashes during the protest on Monday.


The case has also been registered against Pakistan Muslim League Awami chief Sheikh Rashid, Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) leaders Shah Mehmood Qureshi, Arif Alvi and Asad Umer as well as hundreds of unnamed protesters.

Sanaullah in his complaint has accused the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf of calling a strike in Faisalabad to create anarchy and instability and halting the country’s progress, Dawn reported.

He claimed that Khan and other leaders said they would attack and besiege “my house”. They had also asked their supporters to attack the residence.

The former minister claimed that 400 to 500 people had tried to attack his house but did not succeed because of the presence of his supporters.

He said police had made his statement part of the case and nominated the people he had mentioned in his application, the police said.

Violent clashes between workers of the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf and ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) in different areas of Faisalabad on Monday left activist Haq Nawaz dead and at least 17 people, including policemen, injured.
