PTI’s Faisal Vawda survives ‘assassination attempt’ in Karachi
Vawda, who is a vocal critic of all PTI opponents, claimed that at least four armed riders opened fire on his car near Delhi Colony while he was returning from National Accountability Bureau (NAB) office.
The PTI leader maintained that the attackers opened fire on his car from both sides but he survived the attack because his car was bullet-proof.
“It is I who speak against MQM, Peoples Party and PML-N. I was returning after submitting evidence in NAB against land grabbing when they opened fire on my car. These tactics cannot stop me,” Vawda told ARY News.
Fellow PTI leader Imran Ismail, who was with Vawda during the attack claimed that at least six shots were fired upon their car, a FV Jeep but they remained safe.
While coming back from NAB we were attacked by motorcyclists. 6 shots were fired on FV jeep. We r safe Alhamdollilah
