The unfortunate incident took place when the PPP’s long march reached Khanewal city of Punjab province.
Aseefa was standing on the top of the container, designed to lead the PPP’s long march, along with other party leaders when a drone camera accidentally hit her face.
Resultantly, she sustained an injury on the forehead. She was taken down from the top of the truck and given medical aid.
The PPP chairman placed his “Ajrak” on the forehead of his sister. The security guards in the long march got a hold of the drone operator.
After getting the first-aid, Aseefa left for Multan for further treatment.
Addressing the workers after the incident, the PPP chairman praised the bravery of his sister and said: "Aseefa was injured after being hit by a drone, but she was resolutely determined. When she was asked to go to the hospital, she insisted on first-aid only.”
Bilawal said that he came late to the container because he was convincing his sister to go to the hospital.
Channel's staff taken into custody
Following the incident, a police investigation found that the drone camera was being operated from a private channel’s DSNG van.
Police said that except for two people, the rest of the staff of the TV channel has been taken into custody. Meanwhile, Bilawal's security team has taken the drone operator and the engineer with them, police said.

Imran Khan made the announcement in a televised address to the nation, alleging that some lawmakers from his ruling Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI) party had been bribed by the opposition to vote for former prime minister Yousaf Raza Gilani in the Senate elections on Wednesday.
Gilani, fielded by the opposition alliance Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) secured 169 votes while Hafeez Sheikh could manage 164 ballots. Seven votes were declared invalid and were rejected by the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP).
The ruling coalition candidate, Sadiq Sanjrani, on Friday won the election of the Senate Chairman defeating Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) nominee Yousaf Raza Gilani. In a second victory for the ruling coalition, Senator Mirza Mohammad Afridi was elected deputy chairman.
The leaders discussed bilateral relations and ways of enhancing them in various fields to serve development in the two friendly countries and expand the base of their common interests.
The case dated back to last July when an Asian girl filed a complaint in which she stated that her friend living with her in the same apartment attempted to kill herself.
