A number of PTI workers thrashed a PML-N worker in PP-158 constituency of Lahore during voting for the by-election on Sunday, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

The injured Nawaz League worker, Shakeel, claimed that he was tortured on the behest of Jamshed Iqbal Cheema. TV footage showed colleagues wrapping a piece of cloth around PML-N worker’s head to block bleeding.

Also, PML-N candidate Rana Ahsan Sharafat and PTI leader Jamshed Iqbal Cheema also exchanged hot words.

Pertinent to note that for the third time in the last 20 years, by-polls are being held on this seat where PML-N has fielded its ticket-holder of 2018 Rana Ahsan Sharafat whereas the PTI has come up with Mian Akram Usman.

Akram Usman is the son of former IJI MNA Mian Muhammad Usman and also related to PTI senior leader and parliamentary leader in Punjab Assembly Mian Mehmoodur Rasheed.
