PTI’s Imran Shah thrashes citizen on busy road in Karachi

KARACHI: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) member Sindh Assembly Dr Imran Ali Shah on Tuesday allegedly thrashed a citizen in a busy public place.

A video circulating on social media shows Imran Shah repeatedly slap a citizen in the middle of the road near Karachi Stadium. The man reportedly tried to overtake the MPA’s luxury vehicle, while his guards also abused the citizen.

However, Imran Shah addressed the situation and said that the video is misleading does not show the truth. He said the car driver repeatedly struck the rear of another vehicle when he stopped him to demand an answer.

He further said the car driver refused to apologise and instead misbehaved with him leading him to react over the situation. Nevertheless, he apologised if his actions hurt anyone’s sentiments, but said he would not allow any injustice for any reason.

“Being a responsible citizen and a member of provincial assembly I have more responsibility towards my people, The viraled clip is half truth and misleading. I cannot turn a blind eye on someone doing injustice to a citizen for any reason,” said the MPA in a statement.

The PTI has taken notice of the altercation and served a show case notice to Imran Shah, saying that his actions are unacceptable and sought an explanation with the next 24 hours or face disciplinary action.

“No one is above the law is the basic premise of Imran Khan’s Naya Pakiatan. An elected MPA taking the law into his own hands, for whatever reason,is completely unacceptable. We condemn this behaviour and expect strict action to be taken. Show cause notice has been issued to the MPA,” said the party in a statement.

Meanwhile, PTI leader Faisal Vawda termed the act highly unacceptable behaviour in any case, saying no one is above the law. “I apologise on behalf of my party MPA and rest assured justice will be done and will make sure it’s not repeated again.”
