The driver was allegedly drunk-driving when he drove over the officers on duty.
The Driver Is Related To Maryam Nawaz?
A case has already been registered against the suspect by the police. Initially, rumors were circulating that that the driver was related to Maryam Nawaz.
Local news channel said that the driver was Mian Munir, a relative of Maryam Nawaz. However, the politician took to Twitter to dispel the rumor claiming that her relative’s name is Chaudhry Munir.

Driver Sent Back Home
Some publishers and TV networks are reporting that instead of the real culprit, the accompanying servant named Saeed has been imprisoned.
Several sources also say that the family and relatives of the police officers have been forced by officials to let the matter slide – in exchange of a huge sum of money.
