ISLAMABAD – Two unidentified gunmen Thursday forcefully intercepted a car belonging to prominent Aaj TV anchor Rana Mubashir which was being driven by his son. They did no physical harm.
Mubashir was not in the vehicle at the time of the incident that occurred near D-Square on Jinnah Avenue. He told JournalismPakistan.com the gunmen had come looking for him. “They were in a silver-colored Honda Civic bearing registration No. SC 16 and hit the side mirror of my car before intercepting it,” Mubashir said. “One of them was carrying a Kalashnikov while the other had a small weapon.”
He said “they were probably disappointed not to find me in the car and left saying some other time perhaps.” Mubashir said he had no enmity with anyone.
Kohsar Police Station are investigating the incident.
