Islamabad: The Pakistan Army has dismissed several officers, including an officer of the rank of Lieutenant General. All these will also be court martialed. This information was given by the Director General (DG-ISPR) of the Army’s Media Wing, Ahmed Sharif Chaudhary.
There are two types of charges against all these officers. In which after the arrest of Imran Khan, these officers did not stop the attack of Khan’s supporters on the army posts. Another is the apprehension that these officers are involved in a conspiracy of violence. It is believed that Imran will also be arrested soon and will be tried in a military court. 11 people were killed and 283 injured in the violence.
On May 9, former Prime Minister Imran Khan was arrested in the Rs 60 billion Al Qadir University Trust scam. The arrest was made by the anti-corruption unit from the scan room of the Islamabad High Court. Soon after the arrest, supporters of Imran’s party Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) attacked important military bases, martyrs’ memorials, war memorials, headquarters and offices of Pakistan Radio in various parts of the country. All the videos and photos of this violence went viral on social media. After this, the Shahbaz Sharif government and the army arrested around 7,000 Khan supporters.
Meanwhile, the army has made it clear that those behind the May 9 violence conspiracy will be tried in military courts. Imran and his supporters are appalled by this. However, many judges of the Supreme Court and other courts are in favor of Imran and that is the reason why Khan has not been arrested yet. The DG-ISPR said that what the enemy could not do to Pakistan in 76 years, the people at home did on May 9. Now they will not be spared under any circumstances. May 9 was the darkest day in the history of Pakistan. Evidence has been collected on the arrest of Imran and action will be taken in the coming days.
