The PTI activists led by National Assembly members Faheem Khan and Ataullah stormed Sindh House in the Red Zone.
The PTI workers smashed the door of Sindh House and entered the premises.
PTI workers protested inside Sindh House and chanted slogans. Meanwhile, Sindh Police stationed at Sindh House remained helpless in front of PTI workers.
A contingent of Islamabad police also reached Sindh House but this contingent also failed to stop the PTI workers.
The Islamabad Police arrested the members of the National Assembly and 12 workers and transferred to Secretariat, where the Prime Minister’s Special Assistant Shahbaz Gill took the MNAs and the activists with him.
The PTI MNAs and workers, earlier, had reached outside the Sindh House in the red zone where they had protested.
Exchange of harsh words took place between Islamabad police and PTI workers. Later, the protesters dispersed.
