Pindi Bhattian- The police arrested 10 members of Pakistan Tehreek Insaaf (PTI) members, and registered a case against another 28, including the son and nephew of the newly elected PTI MPA Nighat Intasar for misbehaving with the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) MPA Farzana Butt.
PTI activists on the occasion of Hafizabad PP-107 by-poll on May 29 had mobbed the car of PML-N MPAs Farzana Butt and Salma Shaheen, dragged them out of the car, pushed, shoved, shouted and abused them at the Government High School No. 2 Pindi Bhattian polling station. Some of the activists also tried to snatch Farzana Butt’s purse.
The Pindi Bhattian police taking action against this rowdy behaviour of PTI workers registered a case against 13 nominated including Nighat Intasar Bahtti’s son Aoun Jahangir, nephew Azm Jahangir and 15 unidentified PTI workers, while 10 accused have thus far been arrested.
