Imran Khan Tells JIT That May 9 rioters Were Not PTI Employees

Lahore: The former Prime Minister and Chairman of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan has distanced himself from individuals allegedly involved in the May 9 riots.

The city witnessed violent protests on May 9, following the PTI chairman’s arrest in connection with the Al-Qadir Trust case at the Islamabad High Court premises.

Sources indicate that a joint investigation team (JIT), established to probe the events of May 9, interrogated the PTI leader across six cases while he was in Attock Jail on Friday.

During the interaction with the JIT team, led by DIG Investigation, the former Prime Minister explained his situation, emphasizing that he was in detention without access to a telephone, making it implausible for him to incite violence.

He firmly refuted any allegations suggesting he had made calls urging individuals to engage in the rampage that occurred on May 9.
