Reports suggesting that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman and former prime minister, Imran Khan, suffered slow poisoning while in prison have been categorically denied.
Shiraz Ahmad Ranjha, Imran Khan’s legal representative, refuted these allegations, emphasizing their baseless nature.
Ranjha released a video responding to the rumours spreading across social media platforms. Within the statement, he confirmed that there’s no validity to the claims suggesting Imran Khan faced poisoning threats while incarcerated.
Addressing a recent incident that spurred such allegations, Ranjha cited that due to prior assassination attempts on Khan, there’s an increased vigilance regarding his safety, especially against the potential risk of slow-acting poisons.
