According to Umar Akmal he told the traffic warden that he had to get to a function and was already late, after which the warden not only abused him but also assaulted him. Akmal added that his face had been injured in the altercation.
Witnesses said the argument between Umar Akmal and the warden started when Umar refused to show the car documents to the warden.

Akmal was taken to the Gulburg police station where he is detained. His father and brother arrived at the police station after his detention.
