LAHORE: The man, who smashed windscreens and windows of vehicles outside the Minhajul Quran International Secretariat in Lahore in the presence of security officers, surrendered to the police on Wednesday, Express News reported.

Gullu Butt, a resident of Faisal Town, started vandalising private vehicles with a club when the clash broke out between activists of Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) and policemen on June 17, which had left as many as eight party workers, including two women, dead and 85 others injured.

Butt is also allegedly an active member of the ruling Pakistan Muslim League - Nawaz (PML-N). Two cases were registered against the vandal at the Faisal Town police station.

Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah denied Butt’s affiliation with the PML-N.

Television footage had shown Butt arriving at the scene on a motorcycle. He was brandishing a club and chanting slogans. No police official had tried to stop him and the vandalism continued unabated. It was learnt that a VIP calls him Sher-e-Punjab (Lion of Punjab).

Butt had supplied water and cold drinks to the police officials throughout the operation. However, he quickly disappeared after the operation.

CCPO Lahore Chaudhry Shafiq Ahmed had ordered Butt's arrest yesterday following the clash.

This is the change that Mian brothers have brought so far. They had vowed to end Thana Kechehri system, finally they succeed in replacing it by recruiting people like Gullu Butt. Gullo Butt Sher Punjab should be our next chief minister if present electoral system countinue because in our political system every where Gullo Butt people are really on top .Our every police station becomes residence of such people. Punjab government are avoiding local government election because Gullo Butt type of management are most suitable for them.

Gullu was not alone. Uniformed policemen over looking his charge are equally guilty. Bhai Gullu will be set free and continue the path of progress
