Police arrested Qasim Raza Gillani and Ali Haider Gillani, sons of former prime minister Yousuf Raza Gillani, during a clash with workers of the opposition political parties in Multan late on Saturday night.
According to a report, police also arrested 15 workers of the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) during the clash. Some PDM representatives had brought a crane with them to remove the containers placed by the administration in the way of the venue of their public meeting when the clash occurred. Police tried to stop them and they got infuriated.
Police however succeeded in evicting the opposition workers from the main route leading to Qasim Bagh, the venue where the PDM is planning to hold a public meeting. PDM, an alliance of 11 opposition political parties currently trying to topple the federal government led by the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), is holding public meetings across the country as part of its anti-government movement.
