ISLAMABAD: The government called in the army troops as tension gripped Red Zone after angry protestors gathered at D-Chowk opposite Parliament House here on Sunday night.
Marking the Chehlum of Mumtaz Qadri, the stick-wielding protestors began their march from Rawalpindi and reached outside the Parliament House.
According to latest reports, the angry demonstrators set containers blocking the roads on fire outside the Parliament House where no presence of law enforcement agencies was witnessed.
Earlier, police and Rangers did try to disperse the demonstrators by firing teargas shells but they left the area after their efforts to block the protesters from marching forward bore no fruit.
Two persons were injured when supporters of Mumtaz Qadri also attacked Karachi Press Club (KPC). The attackers pelted KPC building with stones and also damaged a DSNG van of a private TV channel.
