Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) supporter Ibtesaam who wrestled the assailant who allegedly shot at party chief Imran Khan and other leaders said on Thursday that he grabbed onto the assailant in an effort to mar his aim.

Talking to media personnel, Ibtesaam stated that he was 10 feet away from the container when he saw the gunman load his weapon and fire once.
