Gullu Butt, who wielded a baton and smashed cars and broke windows of shops during the Model Town massacre in 2014, became famous after his video started doing the rounds on social media.
During the Model Town operation, Butt was beating up PAT protesters with a stick and police officers were idly standing by.
When Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri arrived at the apex court to attend a hearing pertaining to the Model Town massacre case, Gullu Butt came forward and hugged him.
Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri did not reciprocate and security officials pulled Gullu Butt away.
Gullu Butt was sentenced to a prison term but released in 2017.
