The petition comes amid concerns of an anarchic situation as both the Opposition and the Government continue to trade barbs at each other and threaten to flex muscles.

Attack on Sindh House

Friday, a large number of PTI workers – including MNA Ataullah Niazi – gathered outside the Sindh House building for hours to protest against the dissident lawmakers taking shelter at the Sindh House. Many of them raised slogans and brandished ‘lotas’, a derogatory symbol for turncoats in politics.

The situation turned violent when the police ordered them to vacate the area. Refusing to leave, the workers managed to break the gate of the Sindh House and stormed in.

As a result, the Islamabad police arrested around 12 PTI workers including MNAs Ataullah Niazi and Faheem Khan. Furthermore, the police registered an FIR against PTI workers for violating Section 144 imposed in the capital. However, today, the police released the workers on bail.
