Khan answers in a shrill voice that he also won't endure any garbage. 


Inside a split of a second, Siyal gets up and brutally pushes Khan from the seat. And after that, in an attack of anger, he grasps Khan with his arms - like in a wrestling session - and clearly throws blows at him. 

Both yell and swear at one another, stunning the arbitrator while other studio representatives race to isolate the two. 

Siyal comes back to his seat while Khan leaves the studio. After certain minutes, Khan comes back to the show and again sits beside Siyal, cautioning the PTI pioneer of lawful outcomes over the occurrence.
