LONDON: Enraged by the no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan, the ruling PTI’s activists tried to attack PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif in London but his guards thwarted the attack.

During the scuffle, one of Nawaz Sharif’s security guards received injuries. The Scotland Yard has registered a complaint against Shayan Ali and his mother Sadaf Mumtaz on the complaint of assault made by a bodyguard of Nawaz Sharif.

Ahsan Dar, who owns the security firm Systematic Security Limited, which provides security to Nawaz Sharif, told our correspondent that two protection men from his security firm came under attack from teenager Shayan Ali and his mother Saddaf Mumtaz who are from London’s Uxbridge area.

Ahsan Dar said that Shayan Ali and his mother, accompanied by a third man, tried to attack Nawaz Sharif when he was coming out of his office on Saturday afternoon with Dr Adnan Khan and his two security guards.

A police spokesman confirmed that a complaint of assault has been registered.

Ahsan Dar released a picture of the security guard showing him bleeding from the forehead. “Shayan Ali hit him and then Sadaf Mumtaz hit him with her purse.

The police are investigating the assault and the guard is receiving treatment at the hospital. Systematic Security Limited is taking this attack very seriously. We have asked the police to arrest Shayan Ali and Sadaf Mumtaz, they are both violent and have a history of showing violent behaviour in public places.”

Ahsan Dar said that Shayan Ali and Sadaf Mumtaz were using abusive language and while filming rushed toward Nawaz Sharif. At that point, the guards stopped him but Shayan Ali continued his chase and touched the security guard physically.

When contacted, Shayan Ali’s father Shahid Ali said Nawaz Sharif’s guards unfairly treated his wife and son. He said that they were there to show Nawaz Sharif’s office to their “cousin”. Shahid Ali said that this was his son’s right to stage a protest against Nawaz Sharif and Asif Ali Zardari.

Ahsan Dar said that there were about eight people who were hiding in cars and jumped out to attack Nawaz Sharif as soon as they saw him coming out.
