After the announcement of Imran Khan being safe and stable following the “assassination attempt,” Goldsmith took to Twitter and conveyed their sons’ gratitude to the man who caught the attacker.

“The news we dread… Thank God he’s okay. And thank you from his sons to the heroic man in the crowd who tackled the gunman,” she tweeted.

In a series of tweets, Khan's ex-wife Goldsmith praises the young man who crushed the assassinator plan and called him a “Hero”.

She also praised another man who died while saving the PTI Chief and conveyed her condolences to his family.


“Another hero, who tried to stop the gunman, who very sadly didn’t survive. Condolences to his family,” Imran Khan’s ex-wife tweeted.

Dr Faisal Sultan, the former assistant to the prime minister on health, has said that PTI chairman Imran Khan’s condition is stable.

“But according to X-rays and scans, there are fragments of bullets in his legs and there’s a chip in his tibia shin bone,” he told media persons outside the Shaukat Khanum Hospital in Lahore, The Dawn reported.

Sultan added that Imran has been moved to the operation theatre for further evaluation and removal of bullet fragments.

Khan was injured in a firing incident at his container near Allah Walla Chowk in Wazirabad in Pakistan’s Punjab province during his long march against the ruling coalition, reported ARY News.

Goldsmith, a British screenwriter, television, film and documentary producer was Imran Khan's first wife. The couple married in 1995 but got divorced in 2004. They have two sons together — Sulaiman Isa (born in 1996) and Kasim (born in 1999).
