An interesting situation developed during the Punjab Assembly’s (PA) session on Monday when PML-N leader and Punjab Information Minister Azma Bukhari walked out of the House, saying somebody had made an inappropriate gesture towards her, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

Taking notice of her complaint, Deputy Speaker Malik Zaheer Iqbal Channer sent Begum Ishrat Ashraf of the PML-N to go and bring her back to the assembly.

The deputy speaker also warned members of the opposition of strict action in case any of them was caught making such gestures in future.  

He also ordered an inquiry in order to identify members of the Punjab Assembly (MPAs) who were responsible for the incident.
