Prime Minister Imran Khan’s nephew Barrister Hassaan was also involved in the attack on the Punjab Institute of Cardiology (PIC).
Last day, lawyers attacked the heart hospital, resulting in the death of 3 patients, including the woman, who failed to receive timely treatment.
Lawyers broke into the hospital and tortured doctors, staff and patients while breaking glasses of cars parked in the parking lot.
Prime Minister Imran Khan’s nephew Barrister Hassaan Niazi was also involved in the group of lawyers who attacked the PIC and can be seen taking various actions.
Hassaan Niazi continued to incite the assailants, assisting with the stoneware’s, the police mobile which was lit by the lawyers and danced on the burning mobile, the door of the police mobile was opened by Hassaan Niazi himself.
Provincial government and police took action and charged the baton while detaining the lawyers, but despite the clear appearance of Hassaan Niazi’s face in the video, neither Hassaan Niazi’s name was included nor detained in the FIR.
After everything happened, Hassaan Niazi expressed shame on Twitter and condemned his support for this protest.
After watching this clip I feel ashamed of myself. This is murder!!!
My support and protest was limited to initiation of legal action against the concerned doctors. I only stand for peaceful protests.
