ISLAMABAD – A violent clash broke out between the police and the club-wielding Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) workers on Monday in Islamabad after they initiated a march towards the Cabinet Division which houses the most senior and elected officers of the executive branch of the government.
An exchange of expletive-laden language was also reported at the sight of the clash in Islamabad. The clash between police and the Awami Tehreek workers broke out after the Supreme Court of Pakistan ordered the protesting parties to end their sit-in outside the Parliament House in Islamabad.
Currently, the law and order situation has been brought under control. Followers of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan and Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) chief Dr Tahirul Qadri have been demonstrating outside the parliament building in Islamabad, trying to force Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to step down from his office.
