‘Agencies out to kill Murad Saeed’: Imran pleads with CJP to protect PTI leader

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan has expressed alarm about the threats to party leader Murad Saeed’s life and pleaded with Pakistan’s Chief Justice to “protect his life” as there are ‘agencies out to kill him’.

“Honourable Chief Justice, former Federal Minister and MNA Murad Saeed has written this letter to you about his life being under serious threat,” stated the former prime minister in a tweet on Thursday evening.

“Only the Honourable Chief Justice of the Supreme Court can ensure his safety. Just like Arshad Sharif there are agencies out to kill him. I urge you to do whatever is within your means to protect his life,” he said

On Wednesday, PTI leader Murad Saeed penned a letter to Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Umar Ata Bandial, raising concern over “bogus cases” and “life threats” he claims to be facing.

PTI’s official Twitter account also shared the letter Saeed addressed to the CJP requesting him to take notice of the “bogus cases, frivolous FIRs and life threats” he faces as well as the “complicity of the government of Pakistan, its instrumentalities and officers” in the matter.

The former minister in his letter maintained that he had reasons to believe his “fundamental rights guaranteed under the Constitution” were under threat.

He called into question the “constitutionality, validity, reasonability and legitimacy of the acts, omission and commissions of the federal government as well as the provincial governments and their functionaries, instrumentalities and officers”. He urged the Supreme Court (SC) to take notice of their actions.

Saeed in particular has already expressed fears about his safety and requested legal protection, it should be underlined.
