Khan survived the shooting at a political rally in Gujranwala on Thursday, November 3, an incident that his party has called an assassination attempt.

In an interview with newsmen on Monday, November 7, Khan said, “They took out three bullets from my right leg. The left had some shrapnel which they’ve left inside.”

Khan said his bone has been damaged and that his leg is in a cast, adding that it will take four to six weeks for him to resume normal activity.

Khan said that he had information from within intelligence agencies that the shooting which injured him last week would take place.

When asked by reporters on Monday what information he had been given on the incident, and by whom, Khan said:

“Remember, three and a half years I was in power. I have connections with intelligence agencies, the different agencies that operate. How did I get the information? From within the intelligence agencies. Why? Because most people are appalled by what is going on in this country.”
