In an anti encroachment drive in Karachi, eight protesters were injured by police shelling at the national highway.
The anti encroachment operation was launched by the government to retrieve land from illegal occupants at Baldia Town and other areas of Karachi.
More than 25 people have been arrested during the police operation.
The police resorted to firing when the illegal occupants tried to put up resistance. Three policemen were also injured when the protestors hurled stones at them.
Due to the intensity of the situation, a heavy police contingent and rangers were called in to disperse the protesters.
