Murree (Agencies): A Punjab Food Authority (PFA) team was attacked and held hostage by hotel workers owned by former Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) minister Raja Ashfaq Sarwar.
According to media reports, a PFA team headed by Director General Noorul Amin Mengal was targeted by outlaws when the official entered the former minister’s hotel and ordered to seal it on the filthy environment.
The attackers misbehaved the senior state officer, used foul language against him and tried to hit him but his staff took all the slaps and punch on their body.
After one hour police came to rescue the officials and remained reluctant to take any action against the goons. PFA has sealed the hotel of Raja Ashfaq Sarwar and given application to lodge FIR.
Raja Ashfaq is a veteran politician, who remained Member Provincial Assembly of Punjab for four consecutive terms during 1988-90, 1990-93, 1993-96 & 1997-99.
He held the portfolio of Minister for Labour and Human Resource in the last tenure of PML-N.
