A case has been lodged against PPP workers and Senator Mustafa Nawaz Khokhar for attacking police personnel and causing a disturbance in Islamabad. 

The case was lodged at the Secretariat police station a day after PPP workers gathered when PPP leaders Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and Asif Ali Zardari appeared before NAB at the bureau's Islamabad office on March 20.

They clashed with the police and attempted to enter NAB's building.
