Islamabad - A man was shot at and injured by a security guard of PTI’s legislator Ali Amin Gandhapur because he allegedly did not allow a vehicle the security guards were travelling in to overtake on a narrow road leading to Banigala House, the residence of ex-premier Imran Khan, informed sources on Wednesday.
