ISLAMABAD: The Speaker of the National Assembly Asad Qaiser on Thursday took notice of the scuffle between PTI supporters and PML-N leaders outside the Parliament on March 6.

According to Geo News, the speaker has forwarded the matter to the Senior Parliamentarians Council which will investigate the incident thoroughly before issuing a report.

The report will be issued within 15 days.

The incident had occurred when PTI supporters had surrounded PML-N leaders outside the Parliament as they arrived to hold a press conference to condemn the government, on March 6.

This occurred when Prime Minister Imran Khan arrived at the Parliament on the same day to seek a vote of confidence from the National Assembly.

The NA speaker forwarded the matter to the Senior Parliamentarian Council, which will investigate the matter and issue a detailed report on it after 15 days.

TV footage of the incident had showed PML-N leader Musadik Malik being hit from behind, following which him and Shahid Khaqan Abbasi chased down the man who pushed them to deliver some retaliatory blows.

A Peshawari chappal was also thrown at Ahsan Iqbal as he stood on a platform and shouted slogans criticising the government.

Police, meanwhile, was nowhere to be seen.
