ISLAMABAD: Ansar Abbasi, Editor Investigation at The News Saturday received a threatening email message warning him to "behave" and "weigh the pros and cons" of his words.
The sender "Khaki Power' using the email ID email@example.com wrote: "This is not a reminder, it is a serious suggestion. Behave yourself and weigh the pros and cons of your words. Sometimes it is hazardous to bite the hand that once fed it.
"Skeletons can fall out of anyone's closets miraculously from the heavens and effectively ruin a "journalists" career. And we all have skeletons. Good day."
The News reported Sunday that the Federal Investigation Agency had been asked to probe. It said the email was received days after Ansar wrote pieces for his newspaper and sister Urdu daily Jang disagreeing with Gen Raheel Sharif's recent statement that caused quite a stir.
In his writings he also "exposed" Gen (Retd) Pervez Musharraf, saying he had hurt the institution of Pakistan Army. Ansar also commented that the Army chief's statement would be exploited by certain people, including Musharraf and his men that could lead the country towards yet another martial law.
Gen Raheel Sharif, during a visit to the Special Services Group headquarters in Tarbela last week, had said the army respects all institutions of the country but will also preserve its own dignity and institutional pride at all costs.
