KARACHI: Noman Ahmed, a reporter with The Express Tribune in Karachi was badly beaten up Thursday reportedly by accomplices of a former nazim.
The incident occurred on the Baloch Colony flyover when four men in a silver car intercepted him and two of them beat him black and blue, the Tribune reported Friday.
“They kicked and punched me around the head and face; I fell. There were people watching too,” the paper quoted Noman as saying.
The paper said the attackers warned him to be “careful in future, otherwise we will not spare you.”
The Tipu Sultan Police registered an FIR but did not make any serious effort to arrest the attackers.
The car used in the attack is registered to Chaudhry Muhammad Shareef, a former nazim of UC 2 in Maznoor Colony, the Tribune said.
