KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) MPA, Khawaja Izhar-ul-Hassan, on Monday vehemently condemned manhandling of Samaa’s female reporter in state-run National Institute of Child Health (NICH), Karachi.

Mahrukh Siddiqui, was misbehaved and manhandled by an staffer of NICH while reporting death of four infants in the hospital incubators.

Siddiqui was stopped by the NICH staff when she tried to tell the truth behind the tragic incident that claimed four innocent children’s lives after the incubator of the hospital stopped working.

One of the staff members was caught on camera while snatching the reporters mobile phone and forcing the cameraman to off the camera. The rude NICH staffer created chaos in the hospital, stopping the media tea from covering the incident.

Key political leaders of PPP, MQM, PTI condemned the incident, terming it as an attack on media freedom.

Reports said condition of several other children as well remained critical due to lack of oxygen in the medical facility. Samaa correspondent said power supply to the institute was suspended for several hours.

However, K-Electric company spokesman Osama Qureshi denied any power cut, saying that the Pole Mounted Transformer (PMT) that supplies power to NICH is exempted from loadshedding. SAMAA
