#Shehbaz Sharif has requested that Head Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Umar Ata Bandia appoint a “full court committee” to conduct an investigation into severe charges made against him by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan that he was the target of an assassination plot. “I am requesting chief justice of Pakistan to constitute a full court commission and include all judges whether they are senior or junior,” said Sharif during a press conference. 

The Pakistani prime minister announced that he will formally request in writing that a commission is established and that it be led by a judge from the highest court. “If I am found involved in any conspiracy, I will quit politics,” said Sharif before adding, “The federal government will also fully cooperate with the commission and will accept its findings whole-heartedly.”

During the hour-long televised statement on Friday night, Khan described the unsuccessful attempt on his life and charged Prime Minister Sharif, the nation’s interior minister, and a senior military commander with orchestrating the attack without providing any proof. The head of PTI pleaded with General Qamar Javed Bajwa, the Chief of Army Staff (COAS), to punish the “black sheep” in his organization. In case something unpleasant happened to Khan, he also claimed to have a video that would be made public.

Khan made some very serious accusations, but the Pakistan Army quickly responded by calling his claims “baseless and irresponsible” and denying them. “The baseless and irresponsible allegations by the chairman of PTI against the institution and particularly a senior army officer are absolutely unacceptable and uncalled for,” read a statement released by Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) on Friday. 

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