Police foil Egging plot hatched Imran

GUJRANWALA: Thanks to the hard work of local police, a plot to attack Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chairmain Imran Khan with rotten eggs and tomatoes was foiled just prior to the Gujranwala show on Sunday.
Earlier in the day, TV channels had reported that angry Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) activists were purchasing and gathering rotten eggs, tomatoes and shoes to hurl at the PTI Chairman.
The eggs and tomatoes were shown covered with the slogan ‘Ro Imran Ro’ (Cry Imran Cry) – the PML-N’s response to the PTI’s highly successful “Go Nawaz Go” campaign.
When the news aired, local police took action and arrested four PML-N activists who confessed that they had planned to target Imran Khan on Nowshera Road.
The PML-N activists said Imran Khan used derogatory language against their party chief, Nawaz Sharif, and that prompted the egging plot.
In a separate incident, PTI workers caught Bilal alias Lalu Butt, a PML-N activist, and handed him over to police for allegedly ruining posters of Imran Khan. Bilal claimed his innocence and said that he had only been arrested on charges of being a ‘Butt’.
