Imran Khan, the former prime minister of Pakistan, was wounded by gunfire on Thursday, according to a member of his staff.
About 200 kilometres (120 miles) from Islamabad, the country’s capital, the incident happened in Wazirabad.
Many of Khan’s colleagues were also hurt, according to a Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party member.
One person has also been reported dead, according to reports.
“A man opened fire with an automatic weapon. Several people are wounded. Imran Khan is also injured,” Asad Umar told Reuters.
A gunshot struck Khan in the shin as he was leading a protest march in Islamabad calling for immediate elections.
