A shoe was hurled at Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf chief Imran Khan during a rally in Gujrat city in Punjab province.

As Imran Khan was addressing the crowd atop a vehicle, a shoe came flying and hit PTI leader Aleem Khan, who was standing right next to Imran Khan, Dawn reported.

The attacker was overpowered by the crowd.

Soon after the attack, Imran Khan concluded his address.

Today's incident is the third such attack on politicians in the span of a week.
