LAHORE: Prime Minister Imran Khan's nephew was also part of the lawyers protest outside the Punjab Institute of Cardiology (PIC) on Wednesday.

Advocate Hassaan Niazi was also seen in video clips taking part in the protest against doctors. After watching the video clip of a man who said his sister died due to lawyers' protest, Hassaan said that he was ashamed of himself.

"After watching this clip I feel ashamed of myself. This is murder!!! My support and protest was limited to initiation of legal action against the doctors concerned. I only stand for peaceful protests. It's sad day and I condemn my own self for supporting this protest now," he tweeted.

In another tweet, Hassaan said he was 'disturbed' at what had been done in Lahore.

"Kindly keep politics above the deaths of these victims. I’m genuinely disturbed. Look what have we done in Lahore. We all should be on same page on this," he tweeted.

A group of more than 200 lawyers, who had ongoing issues with the doctors of the PIC, stormed the hospital on Wednesday, vandalised property and damaged dozens of vehicles of visitors. They also set ablaze a police van.
