–Info Minister Fawad Ch requests Punjab govt to trace boy, compensate for his loss
A mob allegedly belonging to the Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) has looted a vendor’s cart full of bananas amid the organisation’s ongoing protests across the country.
In a video making rounds over the internet, a young boy selling bananas in Sheikhupura was attacked by a forceful mob that raided his cart, running away with the goods while the boy struggled to protect his source of livelihood.

The video goes on to show the boy try to drive the cart away but the larceny continues.
With the video going viral over the internet, Information and Broadcasting Minister Fawad Chaudhry on Friday requested the Punjab government to extend financial help to the young fruit seller.
