In the viral video, the guard’s fist hit the PML-N leader as he was trying to overcome the crowd hauling Maryam Nawaz.
Shrieking out in pain, Maryam, can be seen holding her shoulder after the incident and her husband, Capt (retd) Safdar can then be seen pushing back the crowd and consoling her lady.
After the incident, the party supporters stepped back and disciplined themselves.
Speaking to the media after the incident, Maryam denied knowledge of any PML-N member attending a meeting with the army chief.
However, the Director General of Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) Major General Babar Iftikhar has later confirmed that Army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa met PML-N representative Mohammad Zubair twice during the last two months.
