Moreover, the police also alleged that Ali Amin Gandapur and his gunmen of fired shots at the policemen and fled the scene. Bhakkar police said that the DPO had also reached the spot on being informed of the incident.

Since PTI leaders are facing an intense crackdown by the Punjab caretaker government, it remains unclear who fired the shots first. The incident is being reviewed by the DPO. Nevertheless, the idea that another PTI leader has faced a possible assassination attempt has sparked concern on social media.

Following the recent Zaman Park clashes between PTI workers and police authorities, the government has intensified its crackdown on PTI. The houses of party leaders and workers are being raided as police have prepared a list of 1,000 people, as per a PTI alert.
