MULTAN – Police have arrested leaders of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) for violence outside regional office the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) in Multan on Wednesday.

The supporters of PTI leader Amir Dogar and PML-N’s Sheikh Tariq Rashid engaged in a scuffle outside the ECP office following a heated exchange at the time of submitting nomination papers for by-elections in NA-155, scheduled to be held on March 16.
