PTI supporters manhandled me: Sethi

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Executive Committee Chairperson Najam Sethi has claimed he was manhandled, pushed and shoved by a group of PTI supporters at The Oval after the thrilling Champions Trophy final between Pakistan and India on Sunday.

“I was manhandled, pushed and shoved by a small group of PTI supporters,” Sethi tweeted late Sunday night. “Police pulled me to safety. Overwhelming love and affection though,” he added.

Earlier, Board of Investment (BoI) Chairperson Miftah Ismail in a tweet said: “I just heard that Sethi was physically attacked by a bunch of youthful supporters of PTI. He had to seek police protection. Horrible”

Meanwhile, a video posted by the official PTI account on Twitter showed Sethi arriving at The Oval and a group of fans shouting ‘Go Nawaz Go’ slogans. “Spotting Sethi after a glorious win, jubilant Pakistanis burst spontaneously into #GoNawazGo outside The Oval,” the PTI tweeted.
