He is the nephew of PML-N, supremo Nawaz Sharif’s late wife Kulsoom Nawaz and is a member of the Punjab Assembly since 2008.

His condition is stated to be out of danger despite receiving severe bullet injuries.

Taking notice of the incident, Chief Minister Punjab Usman Buzdar ordered Capital City Police Officer (CCPO) Lahore Fayyaz Ahmed to submit a report and arrest the culprits at the earliest.
