Former Pakistan prime minister Imran Khan left hospital on Sunday, a senior aide said,
three days after being shot in the legs in a failed assassination attempt.
The shooting — and Khan’s accusation that his successor Shehbaz Sharif involved — have significantly
raised the political temperature in a country that has been on the boil since he was ousted in April.
Former information minister Fawad Chaudhry told AFP that Khan “has been discharged” and a local TV
channel showed him wearing a blue hospital gown as he left the Lahore clinic by wheelchair.
Khan, 70, wounded by gunfire aimed at his open-top container truck as he led a political party convoy
through thick crowds in the eastern city of Wazirabad on Thursday.
