Another Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Khusro Bakhtiar on Saturday announced to leave party positions over May 9 violence.

In a video message, Khusro Bakhtiar announced to resign from key positions, including his membership in the core committee and presidency of the South Punjab chapter.

He went on to say that May 9 events had compelled him to create some distance between himself and the PTI.
