A man was arrested by police for allegedly attempting to hurl shoe at PTI Chairman Imran Khan in Faisalabad, private news channel reported on Sunday.

The accused was collared by PTI workers and handed over to police after he came close to Imran Khan’s vehicle and attempted to hurl shoe at him during PTI rally in Faisalabad.

The man, identified as Mirza Ramzan, was caught and thrashed by the mob. He told media persons that he was angered by Sunday’s shoe attack on Nawaz Sharif in Lahore.

Imran Khan reacted to the incident, saying that “I’m happy to know that he’s not a PTI worker, but I want to make it clear that this is not the way. Such acts are against ethics.”
