Hum News brought to the fore the reality of the video of the protestors climbing on the army tank in Peshawar against the assassination attack on Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan.
It should be noted that yesterday there was a firing incident in the long march of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf at Wazirabad, in which former Prime Minister Imran Khan was shot in the legs, while many of his colleagues were also seriously injured. After this attack, he was immediately shifted to Lahore Shaukat Khanum Hospital where he is undergoing treatment.
While at night people came out on the streets at different places across the country and recorded their strong protest.
In this, a video went viral on social media, in which protesters in Peshawar were seen climbing on top of an armored vehicle and shouting slogans.
Hum News team investigated to know the truth of this video in which the facts have come out that this video is not of Pakistan Army tank but of Police APC.
Actually, this armored car is located at the beginning of the Corps Commander House, its outer gate is on the famous Khyber Road, also known as Jamrud Road, the first gate at the beginning of the cantt boundary is on the opposite hand, Peshawar High Court. A few furlongs before this gate is the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa check post, at which this armored vehicle has been performing security duties for the past several months. It is standing near the house.
On this, Pakistani journalist Wajahat Khan also called it an armored vehicle of the Pakistan Army in a tweet without confirmation. He wrote that such scenes have never been seen in the 75-year history of Pakistan.
Sir this is not a military tank. I think it’s the police APC. Also, the protest in Peshawar was very peaceful as it wasn’t a big crowd. Some of the protesters gathered outside the main entrance of corps commander Peshawar & raised slogans, but PTI leaders called them ‘miscreants’.
