The Sialkot police have registered a case against PTI supporters for threatening PML-N members and opening fire at them while they were campaigning for the NA-75 Daska by-polls.
The re-polling will be held on April 10 on the orders of the Supreme Court. The PML-N members have said that they were campaigning in Kassowal village when PTI supporters stopped their vehicle, opened aerial firing, and threatened them. The FIR names five people and 10 unidentified people.
It has been registered against the following sections of the Pakistan Penal Code.
