LAHORE (Dunya News) – Protests of religious party workers continued on Thursday across different areas of Lahore. A group of charged protesters stormed the gate of the General Hospital Emergency and tried to break it open. The angry mob pelted stones at the gate, leaving police and security guards helpless.
According to sources, a policeman was guarding the public near the General Hospital in Lahore when he was severely beaten by religious party workers.
