MULTAN – A brawl erupted between Chinese engineers and police over security issue in an area near Khanewal on Wednesday.
Media reports suggest the Kabirwala police stopped the foreigners to go out without proper security, which infuriated the Chinese who attacked a police mobile and cut off electricity supply to the police camp.
A footage making rounds on social media shows the Chinese getting into a fight with the cops.
A local TV channel reported that the engineers have written a letter to Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, in which they claimed that their lives were in danger due to the presence of security officials.
The letter claimed that Chinese engineers, working on a motorway project in Khanewal, attempted to leave camp for work purposes but were stopped and assaulted by police.
They have requested PM Abbasi to dismiss police officials from the camp.
This is not the first time that Chinese officials have been indulged in a fight with police officials. In 2006, a similar brawl was witnessed at a police camp near Shujabad.
