Workers from the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) attacked the house and camp office of a Pakistan Peoples Party candidate in the PP-206 constituency in Khanewal on the grounds that the latter was allegedly buying votes.
Problems for PML-N have surfaced even before the by-elections after a case has been registered against party leaders for attacking the PPP camp office and breaking into the residence of PPP candidate Mir Wasiq Serjis Haider.
PML-N leaders allege that PPP members were distributing money among the people to get votes.
PPP candidate Mir Wasiq Serjis Haider told the police that a corner meeting was taking place at his residence when PML-N leaders and workers attacked him.
According to Haider, the PML-N leaders were “bewildered” by the massive crowd.
Later, at the request of the PPP candidate, a case was registered against more than 50 workers of the PML-N, including Ata Tarar.
According to sources, the case has been registered under sections 506, 452/ b, 354,148 and 149. The PPP candidate also asked the police to arrest the accused involved in an attack on his house.
