Workers from both parties pelted each other with stones and threw flower pots towards each other. After the clash, the police ar-rested Sheikh Tariq Rasheed and Malik Anwar from Nishtar Hospital.
Condemnations over Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) leader Amir Dogar’s arrest poured in from the party leadership. PTI sec-retary general and former federal minister Asad Umar
