ISLAMABAD: Sami Ibrahim, senior anchorperson at ARY News was manhandled and abused allegedly by PMLN workers in Washington, reports said Thursday.
The incident occurred soon after Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had finished his speech at the Pakistan Embassy where he addressed the Pakistani community.
Sami speaking to ARY Television claimed the attack was pre-planned. He said the attackers pushed and shoved him and told him to apologize for not reporting facts.
Sami said he did nothing wrong and was reporting professionally as he has always done. "It is a pity the incident happened at the Pakistan Embassy which has CCTV cameras. The perpetrators can easily be identified. They are known people and were led by PML-N secretary Rana Saeed."
He said the attackers were goons of Finance Minister Ishaq Dar and Defence Minister Khawaja Asif.
