HYDERABAD: Police were called in on late Thursday night as workers of Muttahida Qaumi Movement and Pak Sarzameen Party (PSP) clashed in Bhai Khan area of the city, Geo News reported.
The clash erupted during a rally taken out by newly formed PSP, with both the parties accusing each other of instigating violence.
The MQM accused the PSP workers of attacking its Zonal Office in the area, a claim that latter denied. Tensions remained high in the area as police seemed helpless to calm down the enraged activists of both the parties.
According to Geo News, shots were also fired by unknown gunmen at the onset of the clash. The MQM claimed that some of its workers were injured in the attack but local hospitals denied treating any patient from the clash.
A large number of policemen were still present in the area to normalize the situation. The PSP was formed by former Karachi mayor and MQM leader Mustafa Kamal and other former lawmakers and workers of the MQM.
