PTI, on the other hand, alleged that Gillani's guards opened fire on a vehicle which was part of the convoy. The party issued a statement, saying, Gillani, through his armed guards, orchestrated an attack on the convoy of Imran Khan.

"The party further said that all individuals remained unharmed in the attack as the vehicle, which was fired upon, was bulletproof.Ali Gilani, however, categorically denied the allegation, saying: How can I open fire on a convoy travelling with police protocol?"As per reports, the motorcade of PTI chief was coming from Okara and met with the accident when it was near Lahore.
