It was reported that at least 700 schoolchildren allegedly fell sick after polio vaccination in Peshawar causing an attack on a hospital in city by angry mob.
An angry mob had resorted to rioting at Mashokhel Hospital in Badha Beer area of Peshawar after several children allegedly fell sick after being administered polio vaccine.
A heavy contingent of police had reached to the spot and controlled the unrest.
