Shoes hurled at Nawaz Sharif in Lahore seminary

IANS  |  Lahore 

Two men lobbed shoes at former Sharif and one hit him while he was about to address an event at a seminary here on Sunday. This incident came a day after ink was thrown on Asif.

A man hurled his shoe at Sharif, hitting him between the neck and shoulder, soon after the Muslim League-(PML-N) chief reached the podium to deliver a speech at an event organised by the Jamia Naeemia, Dunya News reported.

He then jumped onto the stage and raised slogans in favour of Mumtaz Qadri, the killer of Salman Taseer, before fainting as the crowd jostled him.

Meanwhile, another man also hurled his shoe at the former PM, missing him narrowly. It hit a man standing behind the PML-N leader. The have taken both the men into custody.

On Saturday, a man was taken into police custody after he threw ink at Asif during his speech at the ruling PML-N workers convention in Sialkot.

Asif, however, directed the authorities to release the suspect, saying he did not have any personal enmity with him, adding that the man must have carried out the act at the behest of someone in return for some money.
