Unidentified masked men broke into an office of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s son in London “with an intention of attacking the latter,” PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif said on Friday.
“It is highly reprehensible, shameful and alarming that goons forcibly entered Hassan Nawaz’s office in London with the intention of attacking him. Thank God that Quaid Muhammad Nawaz Sharif remained safe in the attack,” Shehbaz said in a statement.
Shehbaz, who is the Opposition Leader in the National Assembly, said it was a matter of concern that armed assailants tried to carry out a “vicious attack” on the PML-N supremo who has been in London since November 2019 for purported medical treatment.
“The London Police and the authorities concerned should hold a thorough investigation into the incident and punish the culprits as per the law,” he demanded.
The PML-N president also instructed the party’s London chapter to investigate the matter.
