Islamabad/IBNS: Amid rumours of a plot being hatched to assassinate former Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, the Islamabad Police has said that the security agencies have been put on high alert in adjoining areas of Bani Gala in the city.

The Islamabad Police has imposed Section 144 in Islamabad and gatherings have been banned.

"In view of the expected arrival of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan in Bani Gala, which is a residential area located in Islamabad, security in the area has been increased and a high alert has been sounded. However, until now Islamabad Police has not received any confirmed news of return from Imran Khan's team," Islamabad Police tweeted.

"Security Division has deployed dedicated security in Bani Gala. A list of people in Bani Gala has not been provided yet to Police. Section 144 is imposed in Islamabad and any congregation is not allowed as per orders of District Magistrate," it said.

"Islamabad Police will provide complete security to Imran Khan as per the law and reciprocal cooperation is expected from Security teams of Imran Khan as well," the police added.

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Shahbaz Gill on Friday said that the security provided to former premier Imran Khan has been withdrawn.

Gill had said in a tweet, "The security provided to the former prime minister by the Islamabad police was withdrawn."

According to reports, Imran Khan is coming to Islamabad on Sunday.

In April, PTI's Fawad Chaudhary had said that the securities agencies of the country have reported a 'plot' for the assassination of Pakistan's Ex-Prime Minister Imran Khan.

PTI leader Faisal Vawda also made similar claims that there was a conspiracy developed to assassinate the former PM over his refusal to "sell the country".
