What is known about the perpetrator in the PTI long march attack?

ISLAMABAD – During the PTI’s long protest march against the government at Wazirabad on Thursday, an armed man opened fire, injuring Imran Khan, the party’s chairman and former prime minister, as well as other leaders.

In the event, at least one person died, while PTI leader Faisal Javed, Ahmed Chattah, and Umar Dar were among those hurt.

According to sources, the PTI leader has bullet wounds in both of his legs and is currently being taken to the Shaukat Khanum Hospital in Lahore.

Police have in the meantime taken the suspected assailant into custody and moved him to an undisclosed location for questioning.

Social media videos show a man, who appears to be in his 30s, aiming a gun at a container and firing when a long march participant tried to take the gun from him.

Faisal Butt has reportedly been identified as the alleged attacker. The attacker’s name has not yet been independently verified.

Witnesses told the media that the attacker was carrying an automatic handgun because when it pulled the trigger, all of the rounds in the weapon fired at once. They claimed that after Khan initiated the attack, he was joined on the container’s roof by other PTI leaders.

Faisal Shahkar, the Punjab’s Inspector General of Police (IGP), has directed police to submit an inquiry report into the shooting event right away.
