In the context of increasing security threats, Speaker Punjab Assembly Rana Muhammad Iqbal chaired a high-level meeting on Tuesday evening to review security arrangements for the ongoing session, and to discuss the option of closing it before the stipulated time. It was held in the wake of Tuesdays suicide attacks on Islamic University Islamabad and a series of other such incidents that took place recently in the City and other parts of the country.
