Members of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz led by their district president Bilal Butt attacked the residence of PTI Leader Shah Mehmood Qureshi damaging the property by throwing stones at the house.
The angry mob tried to break in the PTI leader’s house in reaction to the ongoing sit-in staged by the party in the federal capital. Charged protesters expressed their anger by pelting stones at Qureshi’s house.
Talking to the media Shah Mehmood Qureshi said that this was the worst kind of political retaliation. He urged that the PML-N should at least suspend the Bilal Butt for committing such crime, adding that such incidents can have huge impact on the thousands of people gathered in Islamabad in PTI’s protest against the government
No arrests have been made so far. SSP operations Chaudhry Saleem said that Bilal Butt and their party workers only protested in front of Qureshi’s house and did not try to break into the house.
