On August 12, a clash took place between angry PML-N workers and police as Maryam Nawaz reached the NAB office in a case about illegal transfer of 200 acres of land in Jati Umra, Raiwind.
PML-N workers – who accompanied Maryam Nawaz from Jati Umrah to the NAB office in a convoy – pelted stones at police officials and tried to break the barriers outside the anti-corruption watchdog’s office.
In response, the police resorted to aerial firing, did shelling and baton charge to disperse the infuriated crowd. Several workers were arrested by the police on the occasion.
