Several men protesting the Faizabad crackdown on Saturday attempted to break into the house of former interior minister Chaudhry Nisar in Rawalpindi.
The irate men broke the main gate and tried to enter the premises but were confronted by police and security guards, Express News reported. They also set fire to the house’s garden.
They chanted slogans against the government and leaders of the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), and demanded an end to the crackdown on Tehreek-e-Labbaik activists across the country and immediate sacking of federal law minister Zahid Hamid.
Security forces launched a crackdown on religious protesters camping at Faizabad Intersection in Islamabad since November 8.
