Meanwhile, PTI chief Imran Khan said that he had lost all trust in the Punjab police for failing to protect women at the rally.

“I am deeply disturbed over the footage of PTI women attending the Islamabad jalsa being attacked as they were exiting the event,” the PTI chairman said in a press statement.

After manhandling of women workers in Islamabad at PTI’s foundation day rally two weeks ago, the party had to face embarrassment after the workers were harassed again at Lahore rally on Sunday despite Imran Khan’s assurance of taking strict measures to ensure there protection.
