LONDON: A small group of protesters gathered outside Nawaz Sharif's Avenfield apartments in London on Sunday and attempted to break into the house.

As per details, protesters attempted to break in to the back entrance of Avenfield apartments soon after Pakistan's former prime minister Nawaz Sharif entered the house. Aggressive protesters were also seen throwing shopping cart (trolley) at Ejaz Gull, a local leader of Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N).

A heavy contingent of police immediately rushed to the Sharif family's residence when the protest turned violent, while Scotland Yard officers searched cars of protesters to identify men who were caught on camera trying to kick in the door of the apartments.

Metropolitan police sources said that they have obtained footage of the attackers and will take action for attempted assault and damage to property.

Footage shows angry protesters attempting to break down the entrance of Avenfield apartments that belong to Sharif family.

On Friday, Accountability Court-I judge Muhammad Bashir awarded the 11-year rigorous imprisonment to Nawaz with £8 million fine, while his daughter Maryam Nawaz was awarded eight-year imprisonment with £2 million fine.

Nawaz Sharif’s son-in-law Captain (retd) Muhammad Safdar, who has been arrested on Sunday, was handed down one-year rigorous imprisonment in the case.
