WATCH: TV debate in Pakistan turns into wrestling match as PTI leader rains blows on journalist
A news debate on a Pakistani news channel turned into a wrestling match after one of the panellists attacked another over an argument. This happened on a live news show.
While one of the panellists on the "News Line with Aftab Mugheri" show was Masroor Ali Siyal, a leader from Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan's Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), another was Karachi Press Club President Imtiaz Khan.
The video of the debate-cum-wrestling match has been shared by a Pakistani journalist.
In the video, PTI's Masroor Ali Siyal was seen warning Imtiaz Khan that he doesn't tolerate such things [probably the way Imtiaz Khan was arguing].
When Imtiaz Khan replied in a similar manner, but in a high-pitched voice, Masroor left his chair, held Imtiaz Khan by his hand and pushed him off his chair.
Reacting to the "assault", Imtiaz Khan got up and attacked the PTI leader.

This led to a fight between the two while the others in the TV studio were heard shouting "hato, hato".
After the others intervened, Masoor Ali Siyal took back his chair to sit while Imtiaz Khan walked out of the studio.
A few minutes later, the Karachi Press Club president came back in the studio and took his seat. At one point in time, he was heard warning the PTI leader of filing a case over the incident.
The video set Twitterati on fire.
