Rauf Hassan, one of Khan’s main aides, said Khan was wounded when the mob fired near the city of Gujranwala.
He added: “His condition is stable, and this was an attempt to kill him, to assassinate him,” noting that one of the attackers was killed and another was arrested.
Khan led a demonstration last Friday from the city of Lahore to the capital, Islamabad, as part of a campaign to demand new elections after being sacked in spring.
