Several lawyers thrashed former federal minister for parliamentary affairs Dr Sher Afgan Niazion Tuesday, as he tried to escape from a plaza in which lawyers had trapped him for more than five hours.

Hundreds of lawyers wielding clubs, tomatoes, shoes and rotten eggs refused to listen to the pleas of Aitzaz Ahsan, Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) president, and Anwar Kamal, Lahore High Court Bar Association president, to cease violence.

The lawyers’ unprovoked attack on Niazi, a heart patient, continued even after an ambulance was called to rescue him from the mob…
