PTI stalwart Aleem Khan loses his cool over 'illegal land grabbing' question by journalist
ISLAMABAD - Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leader Aleem Khan lost his temper on Wednesday when a journalist inquired about allegations of illegal encroachments at Bani Gala.

According to reports, as soon as the press conference by PTI supremo Imran Khan concluded, Aleem Khan got furious over a journalist.

Reportedly, the journalist asked a question regarding illegal land grabbing tactics by PTI Lahore leader. However it seemed as if Aleem was not in the mood to respond to him calmly.

'I can provide you a 5 marla or 10 Marla plot if you need' Aleem replied in a taunting manner.

Allegedly, Aleem also pounced the journalist but other journalists intervened in the matter after which Aleem Khan moved out.

After the incident scores of journalist staged a protest outside Bani Gala and formally filed an application with the Islamabad police, seeking registration of a case against Aleem Khan.
