ISLAMABAD: Jamaat-i-Islami (JI) chief Sirajul Haq has advised Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to get in touch with Pakistan Tehrek-i-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan.

Haq's call comes as clashes are under way in Islamabad between PTI and PAT protests and law enforcement personnel in Islamabad's Constitution Avenue and at least one protester has died as a result.

The clash began when the protesters began to march towards Prime Minister House from D-chowk where they were previously camping.

The situation in the capital is taking on critical proportions with three deaths reported so far among the protesters and the prime minister having left for Islamabad a day before he was originally scheduled to.

Sunday also witnessed a number of attacks on media personnel by personnel from law enforcement agencies.
