A guard of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz’s security detail accidentally struck her while he was trying to keep the PML-N supporters at bay outside the Islamabad High Court.

In a video, Maryam can be seen wincing in pain as she is smacked by the guard on her shoulder. The PML-N leader could be seen holding her shoulder after the incident, as her husband, Capt (r) Safdar tried to console her.

The PML-N leader was at the high court for a hearing of an appeal against her conviction in the Avenfield property reference. Speaking to the media after the incident, she denied knowledge of any PML-N member attending a meeting with the army chief.

She added that the issues that concern the people of Pakistan must be discussed in parliament rather than the General Headquarters.

A day after the opposition’s all-parties conference where they announced the formation of Pakistan Democratic Alliance against the government and called for an end to the interference of the military establishment in politics, reports about a ‘secret’ meeting of parliamentary leaders with the military leadership emerged.

It was revealed that the opposition lawmakers met Chief of Army Staff Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa and Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) Director-General Lt Gen Faiz Hameed.

The reports raised many questions, considering that opposition parties had taken a strong position against the military’s role in politics just a day earlier.
