An eyewitness to the Daska by-poll firing incident and brother of a slain PTI activist on Sunday narrated the entire episode, which claimed lives of at least two people and left many others injured during the polling process.
The brother of slain activist Majid said that PML-N's Javed Butt and Hamza Butt opened fire on him and his brothers and later fled by their vehicles. "There is video evidence of Javed Butt opening fire on my brothers, which led to the death of one of my brothers and injury to another," he said as he was flanked by PTI leaders such as Shibli Faraz, Firdous Ashiq Awan and others during a presser.
Speaking on the occasion, PTI leader Usman Dar, who oversaw the party's election campaign in NA-75 Daska, said that PML-N leader Rana Sanaullah
wanted a repeat of the Model Town massacre in Daska and reached the constituency along with his armed men on the polling day to disrupt the election process.
"People of Daska put up resistance to the violent acts of the PML-N," Usman Dar said while lauding the party activists for showing courage against hooliganism.
