PML-N leader Maryam Nawaz was mistakenly struck by a member of her protection detail outside the Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Wednesday after a small number of party supporters tried to swarm her.

In the video, Maryam can be seen getting struck on her shoulder by a member of her security detail. The guard's fist hit the PML-N leader as he was trying to control the crowd.

Maryam, shrieking out in pain, could be seen holding her shoulder after the incident. Her husband, Capt (retd) Safdar can then be seen pushing people back and consoling her.

People can then be heard saying "step back" as the crowd disciplines itself.

Speaking to the media after the incident, Maryam denied knowledge of any PML-N member attending a meeting with the army chief.

Maryam's denial comes two days after news circulated that parliamentary leaders had met with the army chief and Inter-Services Intelligence Director-General Lt Gen Faiz Hameed.
