Dozens of protesters were detained by police during the confrontations. Maryam Nawaz, the daughter of former Prime Minister of Pakistan Nawaz Sharif, alleged on Twitter that police had attacked her car earlier in the day. «Police attacking my car. Imagine if it were not a bullet proof vehicle. Shame,» the tweet reads.
