Bilawal Bhutto’s convoy pelted in Karachi’s Lyari, 2 injured
Karachi, Jul 01: An unidentified group of people stopped and pelted stones on the convoy of PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari as it passed through Karachi’s Lyari neighbourhood on Sunday, DawnNewsTV reported.
According to PPP leader Saeed Ghani, at least two party workers were injured when a group of people pelted stones on Bilawal’s rally at Juna Masjid. The people also chanted slogans against the PPP, DawnNewsTV reported.
Bilawal’s driver escaped the scene by reversing the vehicle from the area.
PPP leaders said the rally has not been abandoned after the incident, and that it is proceeding through an alternative route.
Nabeel Gabol, another PPP leader said, 20 to 25 “extremists” had attacked the rally with stones. He alleged that administration officials did not make efforts to stop the agitators from resorting to violence.
The situation was controlled after a contingent of police that was deployed in the area dispersed the protesters.
