Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan escaped a shoe attack on Tuesday in Gujrat, for the third time in three days in separate addresses delivered at political rallies.

According to ARY News correspondent, Imran Khan was speaking to party workers in Gujrat when a man hurled a shoe at him, which did not hit the PTI chief but party leader Aleem Khan in the chest.

"Everyone knows what goes on in the police stations in Punjab", he said.

The PTI chief is visiting towns and cities across the country to aid the party's ongoing membership campaign.


He said as many as 15 people were interrogated in connection with the incident.

The party chairman's container has been dispatched to the rally area as well.

The attacks on country's top politicians drew condemnation from ruling and opposition parties.

Earlier on Sunday, a miscreant hurled a shoe at Pakistan's former prime minister Nawaz Sharif when he was about to address a gathering at Jamia Naeemia's mosque in Lahore.

On Saturday, a religious extremist blackened the face of Foreign Minister Khwaja Asif with ink during a PML-N workers convention in Sialkot.
