Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leaders Khwaja Saad Rafique and Haneef Abbasi were allegedly heckled and attacked by female political activists in Islamabad's Kohsar Market, drawing condemnations from politicians.

Reports in local media said two seasoned politicians got into an unwanted situation as female political activists hurled insults and derogatory remarks at Nawaz's aides in the capital on Tuesday.

Abbasi and Rafique were sitting in Kohsar Market when these political activists chanted slogans about alleged rigging in elections.

The women, according to unverified reports, used foul language after which Haneef Abbasi tried to record them in video. It reportedly led to a further altercation. The women even tried slapping the politicians.

PTI activists are having a field day as they continue to share the news on social media. Meanwhile, Islamabad police said no complaint has been filed by PML-N leaders so far.
