LAHORE: The PPP has demanded that the PML-N government arrest Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan for his confession that terrorists had undergone medical treatment at the Shaukat Khanum Hospital, Lahore.

“The law-enforcement agencies should seize the record of the Shaukat Khanum and register a case against Imran Khan for facilitating terrorists,” PPP Lahore Information Secretary Faisal Mir said in a statement here on Saturday.

He said more than 48 hours had already passed but no action was taken against Imran Khan, which reinforced the statement of Bilawal Bhutto Zardari that the PML-N was only doing ‘target killing’ of the PPP.

Faisal Mir and Dr. Zarrar Yousuf said Dr Asim Husain was arrested and remanded for 90 days on charges of providing treatment to terrorists in his hospital but he never made any confessional statement like Imran Khan did.

The PPP has announced holding a demonstration in front of the Governor House, Lahore, on Jan 4 if the FIR is not registered against the PTI chief.
