A senior journalist belonging to a private channel was injured while resisting a robbery on Thursday. According to police, two armed suspects stopped journalist Amir Sheikh in Bagh-e-Iram Colony and stole cash and a motorcycle.
The suspects allegedly tortured Sheikh when he tried to resist them taking the bike. The victim was later shifted to DHQ Hospital by rescue personnel for emergency treatment. According to police, the entire area was cordoned off to hunt down the criminals and raids were under way.
A local journalist body protested the incident, while locals in the area expressed concerns over “recurring street crimes” that put lives of ordinary people at risk. They added that there is no compensation after the crimes.
In a separate incident, four people including a woman were injured during a scuffle over property.
