PTI leader and former special assistant to the prime minister for political communication, Dr Shahbaz Gill, received minor injuries along with three other people in a car crash on M-2 Motorway near the Khanqah Dogran interchange, Sheikhupura, on Thursday, a motorway police spokesperson said.
The incident, which Gill later said was an attempt to murder him, occurred when a speeding vehicle rammed into his car from the rear side.
“The four persons in [Gill’s] car received minor injuries,” a motorway police spokesperson said in a statement.
Gill, who is former prime minister Imran Khan’s chief of staff, was travelling to Islamabad from Lahore when the incident happened.
In a statement on Twitter after the incident, Gill said the car crash was in fact “a murder attempt” on him.
“I want to tell those who attacked me, I am alive because of the Almighty and the prayers of my people. My car was chased and deliberately hit.
