*LAHORE: Punjab Police entered the Punjab Assembly and take three protesting lawmakers into custody. *
Despite protest by former Speaker and Punjab CM candidate Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi over police’s entry in the assembly, the law enforcement agency arrested three Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) MPAs and reportedly tortured several others.
Later Pervaiz Elahi was also attacked after which he claimed that the attack on him was an “assassination attempt” as the attackers cried “*Maar Do*” (kill him) while hitting him.
Earlier, a number of ruling allianceMPAs attacked Deputy Speaker Dost Muhammad Mazari and threw lotas link at him forcing him to leave the house.
The ruling alliance’s MPAs were of the view that Dost Mazari has sold his conscience to opposition despite getting elected on PTI ticket and is therefore ineligible to preside over the session link.
