Three senior officials from #ImranKhan's party have rushed to accuse @GovtofPakistan of involvement in the attack. A probe is in early stage, with the reported arrest of the attacker(s). Unclear if these officials have evidence on their claims. PM Shehbaz Sharif has condemned.
A single burst from likely an automatic weapon targeted #ImranKhan when he was on top of a container truck with aides in #Gujranwala/#Punjab Province, hitting Khan in his right leg & others; Khan was taken to his bullet-proof car instead of ambulance for fear of a second attack.
Conflicting reports on the identity of attacker & whether there was a second attacker. Media is reporting a lawmaker from #ImranKhan's party as saying his guard has been mistakenly identified as the attacker. None of these reports are officially confirmed but circulating online.

Happy #InternationalWomensDay

Sharing my latest for @TheNewsonSunday on whether @rideairlift & @SwvlPakistan can help to reduce #AirPollution #GHGs & #TrafficCongestion in #Lahore

Conclusion: Poor #FuelQuality is significantly adding to #AirPollution… Image
The story begins with a boy named Muhammad Suhaan Rashid, 10, who uses @rideairlift & @SwvlPakistan to commute from his home in Sukh Chayn Gardens to a mosque daily, to learn the Holy Quran. He finds both services to be safe, reliable and cost effective.
Never before have these services been introduced in Lahore - the #CityofGardens which has now turned into a #CityofConcrete owing to #populationexplosion & #horizontalexpansion

Worst of all, #AirPollution has adversely affected #Lahore, with extremely high levels of PM2.5
