Dissident Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) MNA Noor Alam Khan, who had announced along with 24 PTI MNAs that he would not support Prime Minister Imran Khan during the vote of no confidence against him, has claimed to have received death threats.
Noor Alam Khan shared a screengrab of the messages, claiming that he had been “Receiving threats telling me what we did with Benazir Bhutto shaheed and Bashir Bilour shaheed will do with you and your three sons.”

The threats come as a group of angry workers of the PTI broke the gates at Sindh House, forcibly storming the property until police were called on to respond. Two PTI MNAs, Faheem Khan and Attaullah Niazi, were arrested for leading the attack on the Sindh House, along with other members of the mob.
Information and Broadcasting Minister Fawad Chaudhry has highlighted Sindh House as a ‘den of horse-trading’, as 24 PTI members, including Noor Alam Khan and Raja Riaz, broke rank and moved to the location.
On Wednesday, the prime minister claimed that the money of the people of Sindh was loaded into sacks and being brought to Islamabad to buy MNAs, presumably referring to the Sindh House. “People’s conscience is being auctioned,” the premier alleged.
The information minister posted a Tweet on Friday calling Noor Alam Khan and Raja Riaz ‘besharam’ [shameless].
