Nawaz shoe attack: Three suspects sent on 14-day judicial remand | Pakistan
During an event at the Jamia Naeemia Seminary on Sunday, a former seminary student threw a shoe at Nawaz, who hit him on the chest and shoulder.
Police detained three people after the incident after the administration of the seminary handed them over to the authorities.
On Monday, police presented three suspects – Abdul Gafur, Mohammad Sajid Hussein and Munawar Sabir – in court, where they received a 14-day judicial beating.
The FIR, registered against them at the Kila Gujar Singh police station, includes charges of assault, intimidation of criminals and violation of public order.
After the incident in which Nawaz remained unharmed, the former prime minister continued his appeal to the seminary students and later left the venue.
The police later identified Munawar, a former seminary student, as an attacker.
Speaking of Geo News after the incident, senior journalist Sohail Warraich, who was at the event, said that the attacker chanted slogans in favor of a religious party that had protracted protests against the government in Islamabad in the past year for the role of the ruling party in amending the end of the prophecy about the oath of legislators.
Alma Ragib Naemi, head of the seminary, condemned the incident and said that Islam teaches respect.
At a press conference on the same day, he said that although democracy adheres to disagreements, uttering differences in this way is not appropriate.
"Our relations with the Sharif family can not be limited as a result of these actions," he said and called the incident part of the plot.
Allama Naemi also called for severe judicial punishment against the perpetrators of the attack.
