Police officer Nishat Cheema said the two men were former students of the Jamia Naeemia seminary, which Sharif visited Sunday. The Punjab Police also arrested the other suspect.

The case against three was lodged under Section 16 (Dissemination of rumours) of the Punjab Maintenance of Public Order Ordinance and Section 355 (Assault or criminal force with intent to dishonour a person, otherwise than on grave provocation) of the Pakistan Penal Code.

Nawaz Sharif addressed the crowd and praised its late leader, Mufti Naeem, before ending his speech and departing.

In its message on micro-blogging site Twitter, Imran Khan-led Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) said that it was regrettable that PML-N's policies have turned the people against the party to the extent that they have resorted to such antics.

However, Sharif went ahead and delivered his address.
