Syed Imran Ali Shah, the elected MPA from PS-129, was seen thrashing a common man publically on one of the busiest roads of Karachi. After the video went viral, not only was the MPA shown extreme hatred by the Pakistanis, but the PTI had to issue a show cause notice within a couple of hours.

Earlier on Tuesday, after a video went viral of the MPA thrashing a citizen, PTI had issued a show-cause notice to him saying his actions were ‘unacceptable’.The notice said that Shah should present his version “within 24 hours” otherwise he would be referred to the disciplinary committee.
Shah, who was elected MPA from Karachi’s PS-129 constituency during the July 25 polls, was caught on video slapping a man multiple times in the middle of a road in Karachi.
