Unidentified men attacked the convoy of Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) founding member Imran Ismail near Jinnah Ground in the Azizabad area with bats and bricks.
TV footage showed men attacking the convoy and smashing the windows of a white Land Cruiser with cricket bats as it drove off. The windows of another car were also smashed and jeering people were seen kicking the vehicles.
While addressing a press conference, Ismail said “MQM activists manhandled and injured PTI workers, they also smashed the windows of our vehicles. PTI will lodge an FIR against the people responsible for this vandalism.”
Acting on the request of PTI member Uzair Afridi, Azizabad police have registered an FIR against unidentified people for attacking PTI convoy near Jinnah Ground.
Imran Khan, chairman PTI announced earlier today that his party will soon hold jalsa in Jinnah Ground Karachi.
