Reham Khan, the ex-wife of Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, narrowly escaped a gun attack in Islamabad late Sunday night, Samaa TV reported.

She raised a question at country’s law and order situation by asking “This is Imran Khan’s New Pakistan?”

In a series of tweets, Reham wrote that she had “just changed” the vehicle and that her secretary and driver were in the car.

“On the way back from my nephew’s marriage my car just got fired at & two men on a motorbike held vehicle at gunpoint!! I had just changed vehicles. My PS & driver were in the car. This is Imran Khan’s New Pakistan? Welcome to the state of cowards, thugs & the greedy!!” Reham Khan tweeted.

Reham, in multiple updates on her Twitter handle, complained that she and her staff had to wait for hours to get an FIR registered, the report said.

“It’s 9 am. My PS (personal secretary) and team have not had a minute of sleep and the FIR still has not been registered in Shams Colony Police Station Islamabad. (The) investigation is ongoing,” she tweeted Monday morning.

At 10 a.m., Reham shared a copy of her complaint filed at the police station. It states that they were on the Rawalpindi-Islamabad highway near the IJP Road when two men tried to stop them at gunpoint. The suspects were between the ages of 25 and 30.

She added: “I choose to live & die like the average Pakistani in Pakistan. Whether it was a cowardly targeted attack or just the state of lawlessness on the main highway of the twin cities…this so called government should be held accountable for it! For my homeland I can take a bullet!”

She added that they are now waiting for the FIR.

The ex-wife of the Pakistan Prime Minister is often seen criticizing him and frequently slamming him for his style of governance. (IANS/ANI)
