ISLAMABAD – Electronic media regulator PEMRA Tuesday granted a one-week extension to ARY TV for responding to a complaint filed by Neo News reporter Shakir Abbasi.
Abbasi complained that while airing a press conference of MNA Ayesha Gulalai and subsequent reports on August 1 and 2, the channel showed his pictures “with an ulterior motive and in order to jeopardize his professional repute.”
Moreover, ARY reported that he was a relative of Reham Khan, former wife of PTI Chairman Imran Khan. An old picture of Reham with the complainant was also displayed on ARY.
PEMRA had issued a show-cause notice to ARY and asked the channel to submit its reply by August 8. However, on the news organization’s request, a one-week extension was granted Tuesday.
