ISLAMABAD – Islamabad Police have registered an FIR against NewsOne TV analyst Dr. Shahid Masood for threatening, harassing and snatching a journalist’s mobile phone.
Noorul Amin Danish of Samaa TV had filed a complaint with the police last month about the incident.
Masood lost his cool after Danish asked him a biting question at the Islamabad High Court where he appeared in a corruption case against him.
The analyst responded angrily to the question and also threatened the reporter.
In a fit of anger, he snatched the reporter’s cell phone and deleted the footage he had made. On the intervention of the lawyers present at the scene, Masood returned the cell phone.
The incident occurred in the court’s parking lot on October 29.
The FIR was registered under Section 506ii at the Ramna Police Station.
