PM Imran Khan's nephew Barrister Hassan Niazi was present outside PIC during lawyers violent protests
LAHORE – Prime Minister Imran Khan’s nephew, Barrister Hassaan Niazi, was present outside the Punjab Institute of Cardiology (PIC) on Wednesday (yesterday) during the lawyers’ violent protest.
Hassaan Khan Niazi, son of Hafizullah Niazi, can be seen pelting stones and breaking a police mobile in a CCTV footage. He also took pictures with his friends outside the PIC.
Following the incident, he took to Twitter and wrote, “After watching this clip I feel ashamed of myself. This is murder!!!
“My support and protest was limited to initiation of legal action against the concerned doctors. I only stand for peaceful protests.
“It’s sad day and I condemn my own self for supporting this protest now.”
It is pertinent here to mention a violent clash had erupted between hundreds of lawyers and doctors on Wednesday which left at least three people dead when the charged lawyers stormed into the PIC and broke windows of the emergency ward and several vehicles parked nearby.
Two FIRs (first information reports) were registered against over 250 lawyers who were involved in the attack.
