Imran Khan, a former prime minister of Pakistan, was shot in the leg in a failed assassination attempt on Thursday evening while he was addressing a huge crowd in Wazirabad.

Khan and some of his fans were wounded after a shooter opened fire during his speech to supporters at a gathering during the long-march.

Imran was seen being carried from the container to another vehicle in footage that was broadcast on a number of Pakistani television channels.

Faisal Javed was hurt, while Imran’s right leg had three to four gunshot wounds.

Senator Faisal Javed and Ahmad Chattha were among those who were injured in the incident, according to Fawad Chaudhry.

After receiving initial care at a neighbouring hospital, Khan is currently being transported to Shaukat Khanum, Lahore.

After being ousted from office in April, the former cricketer, who has been advocating for new elections, has been giving vehement speeches at events across the nation.

Imran Khan is organising a massive protest against the current administration into Islamabad. Khan has just declared that the long march will continue for an additional 10 months until the election date is set. When the shooting occurred, he was six days into a march from Lahore to Islamabad in support of early elections and radical change in the state.

The public is frustrated and demands that those who are trying to kill Imran Khan be penalized. In the words of PTI supporters, Imran Khan is their “red line,” and whoever attempts to lay a finger on him shall have to face the consequences.
