Junaid Safdar, son of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Maryam Nawaz, was taken into custody by London Police after being involved in a ‘scuffle’ with Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) workers on Thursday.
The former first daughter claimed that PTI workers outside their Avenfield apartment verbally abused him and spat at him.
Maryam, daughter and political heir apparent to deposed prime minister Nawaz Sharif, added that “anyone would have reacted” to such unacceptable act.
