ISLAMABAD – A former commando of Special Service Group has been appointed as security in-charge of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman Imran Khan who said his life is in danger.

Reports in local media said Lieutenant Colonel (retd) Asim has been picked as the chief security officer for ousted Pakistani premier Imran Khan.

The move comes as the Sharif-led government demanded the former ruling party to appoint a focal person following startling revelations of cricketer turned politician.

PTI chief during the Sialkot rally claimed that a conspiracy was being hatched to take his life and that he recorded a clip mentioning the names of all conspirators. Khan also revealed that the video will be made public if anything happened to him.

Following claims of the outspoken politician, the newly installed premier Shahbaz Sharif called a meeting and reviewed security threats to the former PM. Sharif reportedly ordered foolproof security at his home in Islamabad and during political rallies.

Reports suggest that nearly 94 police and Frontier Constabulary (FC) personnel have been deployed for the security of Imran Khan’s personal residence.
