Islamabad: Death threats have forced senior PML-N leader and Chief Minister of Pakistan`s Punjab province, Shahbaz Sharif, to curtail his public activities.
Sources close to the Chief Minister told The News daily that he had received death threats.
They said an investigation is underway following reports from security agencies about these threats. According to reports, security agencies have warned that
Sharif might be attacked during visits to hospitals for inspection of healthcare arrangements to counter the spread of dengue fever in Punjab.
On the request of security agencies, the Chief Minister cancelled his visits to Sahiwal and Sargodha on September 08.
He also did not attend other official events in Faisalabad, Bahawalpur and Gujranwala two days later.
The anti-terrorist squad and other agencies have been informed about the threats.
Sharif, the younger brother of former premier Nawaz Sharif, had earlier received threats on two occasions in August.
