Expressing severe concerns over the abrupt ban on Khan’s meetings in the prison, PTI Chairman Gohar Ali Khan feared that the former Prime Minister’s life is in danger, The News reported.

Addressing a press conference outside the jail, Gohar claimed that they were barred from meeting the incarcerated PTI founder.

He said that the authorities did not inform anybody about the two-week ban on Khan’s meetings.

 

 

The authorities gave “terrorism” as a reason for the move, he added.

Gohar also demanded an immediate meeting with the incarcerated PTI founder, as he sought details about Khan’s health, The News reported.

Khan, who’s serving a total of 31 years’ sentence in multiple cases, had been holding meetings with his lawyers, family members, and party leaders since being moved to the Rawalpindi facility in September 2023, on two days — Mondays and Thursdays — allocated for such engagements.
