Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader Aseefa Bhutto Zardari was injured on Friday after she was hit by a drone camera during the party's long march in Punjab’s Khanewal district.

The PPP leader was accompanied by her brother and party chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari among other leaders on the container, built for the party’s Awami March against the government of Prime Minister Imran Khan.

According to the media reports, Aseefa sustained wounds just above her right eye and paramedic staff suggested shifting her to Multan for treatment.

Bilawal, while addressing the participants of the march, confirmed that his sister was wounded after being hit by the drone. Paramedic staff available on the venue suggested that she needed stitches but Aseefa refused to be taken to the hospital and asked the ambulance staff to treat her with a bandage only, the PPP chief informed.

Aseefa’s elder sister Bakhtawar later shared her latest photo with a bandage above her eye. In the photo, Aseefa can be seen smiling and waving at Jiyalas surrounding the party’s container.

The PPP Awami March started from Karachi on February 27. The marchers travelling through Thatta, Sajawal, Badin, Hyderabad, Nawabshah, Khairpur, Sukkur and Ghotki reached Rahimyar Khan on Thursday.

The PPP chairman delivered five addresses yesterday and camped in Multan for the night. Bilawal made his first speech in Liaqat Pur Bela, the second and third at Ahmedpur Sharqia, fourth at Lodhran and fifth at Bahawalpur Bypass in Multan.

Bilawal issued a five-day ultimatum to Prime Minister Imran to either step down or dissolve the assemblies to pave the way for fresh elections in order to avoid the wrath of his marchers coming to Islamabad.
