Anchorperson Dr Shahid Masood was arrested on Friday in the PTV corruption case.

Masood, the former PTV chairperson, is being investigated for his alleged involvement in the embezzlement of Rs38 million.

According to the FIA, he signed an agreement with a fake company to obtain the media rights for the Pakistan Cricket Board.

The officials had said earlier that the state-owned television channel suffered a huge loss because of the agreement.
