Nawaz assures journalists that his guards would never attack them again

December 18, 2018

Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif assured on Tuesday journalists that the attack on SAMAA TV cameraman Wajid Ali will never occur again.

“I assure you that such actions will not be held in future,” he remarked while speaking to media outside the accountability court. He had come for the hearing of Flagship Investment.

The PML-N Quaid has taken notice of the attack. “I condemn the attack on Wajid Ali,” he said, adding that he was quite saddened by it. I ordered his treatment when I got to know about it, Nawaz said. “I respect the journalists’ community a lot,” he added. The former premier is expected to meet journalists during the hearing break.

A SAMAA TV cameraman was left unconscious after being attacked by former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s bodyguards outside parliament on Monday. His condition is said to be stable now.

Ali was making footage of Nawaz Sharif while he was leaving parliament. His camera hit the shoulder of Nawaz’s chief security officer by mistake. The enraged security officer ordered his subordinates to “get that boy and teach him a lesson”. The security guards pushed Wajid Ali on the ground and one kicked his skull. The cameraman fell unconscious with blood dripping from his nose and mouth. The disqualified prime minister didn’t notice it and left in his vehicle without his security protocol.

A case has been registered against three security guards under sections 355 (assault with intent to dishonour a person) and 506 (criminal intimidation) of the Pakistan Penal Code, 1860. Two security guards have been taken into custody.

    Wah.. pehlay maro baad may bolo sorry.. yeh ti wohi poorani hekatay howi ba..
    When someinebhits you courts dhould penalize them why cant we have some civil laws.. why caht Pakistan change its laws. We must worin o fil laws a d make amenmentsm all thay rich men keep getting away with everything. We need laws that stops any man from hitting any other. And if they do they must be held accountable by courts. There should be some fine and a weeks jail time included.
    Pakistan must start a massive reforms in laws at once. Because no civilized society can function with out civil laws and liberties.
    Maybe we can take a lesson from Europen and American history
