During the by-election, PTI supporters of MPA Tariq Sahi exchanged harsh words with PML-N former Nazim Rana Sarfraz Ahmad and beat the PML-N supporters. The PTI workers were enraged when some PML-N workers put a bat (the PTI symbol for election) on fire in front of the Sir Syed High School (Polling Station No 138). In response, the PTI workers uprooted the PML-N camp at Munshi Mohallah.
They also beat PML-N workers there. The PTI and the PML-N supporters exchanged fire at the Rakh Baloch polling station. As a result, three PML-N workers - Ijaz, Adil and another - were injured. PTI supporters Sajjad and Zafar Iqbal were also injured. All the injured have been admitted to the DHQ hospital.
