RAWALPINDI: The statues of lions, installed outside the residence of a woman leader and former MPA of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) in Lalazar colony, were smashed and stolen by unidentified persons.

Tehsin Fawad, the PML-N leader, lodged an FIR with Civil Lines police saying two persons who were hiding their faces with masks chased her till she reached her house in Lalazar. She said one of them carrying a hammer smashed the statues of lion installed at the gate of her house and later took with them.

She said the attackers also pelted her house with stones.

Ms Fawad, however, did not name or accuse anyone in the FIR registered on Thursday. Police have so far failed to identify any of the attackers.

Emad Rashid, the PML-N leader’s son, told Dawn that earlier a similar incident had happened in their neighbourhood from where the statues of lions were stolen.

It may be recalled that ‘Lion’ is an election symbol of the PML-N.
