The wife of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has been nominated to contest his seat, the ruling party said Friday.
"A 13-year-old boy who had came to see the rally was hit by a auto in the convoy", Sajid Ali, head of the local Lalamusa police station, told AFP.
Nawaz Sharif stated during his address at Gujranwala that he would visit the house of the deceased child and help his family in whatever capacity he could.
As at previous stops along the route, Sharif railed against the court's decision, insisting his conscience was "clean" against allegations of corruption.
Sharif travelled from the garrison city of Rawalpindi to Ayub Park with his convoy but then separated from the other vehicles shortly after 2 pm.
The body was in the crowd of Sharif's supporters gathered to greet him. The convoy was surrounded by heavy security, with fears lingering after a truck bomb exploded in Lahore on Monday, killing one person and injuring dozens.

Sharif hopes to bring tens of thousands more into the streets in Lahore but it is not yet known when he will arrive in the Punjabi capital.
"The Supreme Court should do justice to Sharif and restore him", he told AFP.
"Pakistan is an unfortunate country where 18 prime ministers had not been allowed to complete their tenure since partition while three dictators stayed in power for more than 30 years", he said.
Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz party members Asif Kirmani and Captain Safdar filed the nomination papers of Kulsoom, who is in her late 60s, for the upcoming by-poll for the NA-120 seat at the Election Commission of Pakistan's (ECP) Lahore office, Dawn News reported.
The former prime minister had earlier announced his younger brother Shahbaz Sharif's name as the party candidate.
He said the power without authority was of no use, adding that Nawaz Sharif didn't come out to get reinstated. He said that the warm welcome of Nawaz Sharif proves that he is the only national leader who lives in the hearts of every Pakistani and the nation is fully supporting the PML-N leadership for the completion of development journey.
