SHERGARH: Two Shergarh police officials were suspended after a scuffle with Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leaders and workers on Saturday. PTI’s president for Takht Bhai tehsil, Sadiq Hussain, came to the Shergarh police station with party worker Shezad for some work. However, a heated argument took place and a brawl ensued. Hussain tried to meet SHO Khadamin at his office, but he was reportedly forced to leave the police station. Policemen also allegedly attacked PTI workers outside the police station. PTI workers then blocked Malakand Road at Jalala and demanded that the police officials involved in the incident be suspended. PTI MNA Muhammad Ali Khan subsequently told party workers that SHO Khadamin and ASI Mushtaq had been suspended.
