“…on a comment by Barrister masroor. On my turn, I started by saying “I agree with Masroor sahib to the extent that” and here Hamdullah and went on and on with his arrogance and rudeness. I responded in almost the same coin… I returned this to his own family women. And then he tried to beat me. All of this recorded in camera,” tweeted Sirmed.

Note: Name of a private TV channel has been expurgated from one of the tweets due to editorial policy.
