The opposition had expected to take power on Sunday after mustering enough votes to oust the cricketer-turned-politician, but the national assembly deputy speaker refused to allow the motion to proceed because of "foreign interference".
Ibtisam Hassan, the young man in a Fila T-shirt identified in the CCTV video, seized the gunman and took the gun away from him.
Imran also said that that “four people hatched a plan to assassinate me some time back…”
The apex court ruled that President Dr Arif Alvi's decision to dissolve the National Assembly was "illegal" and restored Imran Khan as well as his cabinet.
The Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf has changed the schedule of its long march for a third time, announcing that the protest march would resume on Thursday from Wazirabad – exactly from the point Imran Khan was injured in a gun attack last week.
Former information minister Fawad Chaudhry told reporters that Imran "has been discharged" and a local TV channel showed him wearing a blue hospital gown as he left the Lahore clinic by wheelchair.
PTI leader Azhar Mashwani said that PTI chief Imran Khan is safe while the culprit has been arrested.
Bajwa, who is due to retire on Nov.29, also said that the military had decided in February last year to quit any role in Pakistani politics, though analysts remain sceptical that it will do so. "I want to assure you that we're strictly binding on it, and will also abide by it in future," he said.
Imran Khan, in his first public appearance since being wounded in a gun attack earlier this month, said on Saturday he was calling off his protest march to Islamabad because he feared it would cause havoc in the country.
In an interview with France24, Imran said that he still dreaded another bid on his life in the near future. "They think that the only way to get me out of the way is actually [to] eliminate me. So I think that there is still a threat.”
