Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) Information Secretary Raoof Hasan survived a dangerous attack in Islamabad earlier this week. He has claimed that the attackers wanted to “slit” his throat.

Hasan, while addressing a press conference in Islamabad, broke down in tears saying that his party colleagues faced much worse scenarios compared to what he suffered.

The Secretary Information claimed that “those people threatened me three days ago and warned that they’re after me.”


PTI Secretary General Omar Ayub along with Hasan and Azam Swati rejected the First Information Report (FIR) lodged by the Islamabad police after the attack.

Omar condemned the attack on Hasan and called it an “assassination bid”. He said the party rejected the FIR which was “a police attempt to weaken the case”.

They demanded a judicial commission to investigate the attack.

Meanwhile, the federal government has formed a committee to investigate the attack.
