Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz could not produce a single document in front of the Supreme Court in their defence.

The security personnel caught the student and his other accomplice who also chanted "Labbaik Ya Rasoolullah" slogans and gave them sound thrashing.

Last month, a man had hurled a shoe at Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal while he was addressing a workers convention in his hometown Narowal.

Nawaz, meanwhile, addressed the event after the chaos ended. In Gujranwala, CM Shehbaz Sharif will address the workers while in Rawalpindi, Maryam Nawaz is set to spew blunt attacks on the opponents.

The Punjab police took both attackers and one witness into custody.

The minister, however, pardoned the man saying he didn't know the attacker and has no enmity with him.

The shoe hit the leader of Pakistan Muslim League - Nawaz (PML-N) on his shoulder, reported The Express Tribune.

The religious parties especially Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan had held Sharif and his party (PML-N) responsible for making an attempt to change a clause related to finality of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) in the Constitution.

According to a private news channel, the minister had to leave his speech incomplete and came down from the stage. Media reports suggested that the man, identified as Bilal Haris, tried to get closer to the minister as soon as he arrived on the stage in Aliabad to address PML-N supporters. This should not have happened and I'm happy that no PTI member is involved in this, Khan noted.
