Sharif was about to address a gathering at a seminary in Lahore when the student lobbed shoes at him which hit his shoulder.

Reports say that the accused was beaten up by the seminary staff and some students after the incident and has now been admitted to a hospital to undergo treatment. Mr Asif, however, directed the concerned authorities to release the suspect, saying he did not have any personal enmity with him, adding that the man must have carried out the act on behest of someone in return for some money.

Later, the two students were handed over to police.
