Islamabad : The Chief Minister of Pak Punjab, Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi suspended police officials and other personnel after  video confession of Imran Khan’s shooter was released to public.  In the recorded confession, the culprit is heard saying he”wanted to kill Imran Khan” because  he “was misleading people”. The alleged shooter said he acted alone.

Pakistan’s former Prime Minister Imran Khan was shot Thursday as his protest convoy passed through Punjab province.

In the media footage of the assassination attempt, Khan is seen waving from an open-topped truck outside the town of Gujaranwala when suddenly, shots ring out and his party members duck for cover. A bullet strikes Khan in the lower log.

Several persons were injured in the incident and one succumbed to bullet wounds.

The shooter’s confession was released by state ministry on Thursday.
