SIALKOT - A man threw ink at Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif on Saturday while he was addressing Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz workers convention, reported a private TV channel.

The man was taken into custody by the police; however, Asif said he should be released saying he has no enmity with him.

Asif after the incident alleged that the suspect was “sent by someone”, adding that this act will not affect his politics.

The pardoning of the ink-thrower was rejected by PML-N workers, who voiced their displeasure through their chants.

Last month, a man hurled a shoe at Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal while he was addressing a workers’ convention in Narowal. The man, Bilal Haris, stood up from his seat as Iqbal arrived on the stage to address the convention in Aliabad area.
