Unidentified, masked men attempted to attack Nawaz Sharif, claims PML-N

Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) leader and former Prime Minister Mian Nawaz Sharif was allegedly attacked in London by unidentified masked individuals on Friday, the PML-N officials claimed.

The incident happened late Friday evening when four men attempted to storm Hasan Nawaz Sharif’s office in London, seeking to meet Nawaz Sharif in person.

Party leaders claimed that the former PM was inside the office and all those unidentified men had this in their knowledge. The masked men were also alleged to have threatened Hassan Nawaz at the entrance of his office.

Three, of the four men, were wearing hoodies and masks to conceal their identity while the fourth one was in a suit and wore no mask.

They told Hasan Nawaz at the entrance that they had an appointment with Nawaz Sharif and had come to discuss an important matter with the latter.

Around four PML-N workers, from inside the office, rushed outside and confronted those unknown men. As per the footage released to media, Hasan Nawaz, Nasir Butt and other PML-N members can be seen speaking to the four men. 

These men refused to reveal their identity and said that they wanted to give a message to Nawaz Sharif which was of urgent nature. They came in a car with a registration number RE58NCJ.

PML-N leader Nasir Butt, later told the media that these people falsely claimed to be Pakistani nationals. He said that the video of the suspects had been given to the police and due process of law will be carried out against them. 

Reacting to the happening, PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz said that Nawaz Sharif, being a voice of the people of Pakistan, cannot be silenced.

She said those who played with his life during his time in jail had not yet given up on targeting him.
