A spying attempt on Pakistan’s former Prime Minister Imran Khan was foiled when an employee at Khan’s residence was caught trying to install a spy device in his room, local media reported.
Citing sources, Pakistan’s local media ARY News reported that an employee of Bani Gala was paid to install a device in the former prime minister’s bedroom. However, the spying attempt was foiled after another employee informed the security team about the installation of the device.
The Bani Gala security team detained the employee and handed him over to the federal police.
This development comes amid rumours of a plot being hatched to assassinate the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman. Earlier, the security agencies were put on high alert in adjoining areas of Bani Gala in the city in view of this alleged threat.
Many from PTI have been asserting that Imran Khan’s life is in danger. “In this regard, we have informed all relevant agencies, including the government,” PTI leader Shehbaz Gill said.
