ISLAMABAD – The National Press Club was rocked Saturday after a member of its governing body claimed that the Media Enclave, a housing scheme for journalists, had been sold.
Raja Waheed Janjua’s allegation prompted the club to constitute a probe committee comprising senior journalists.
The committee, headed by veteran journalist Saud Sehar will call up Junjua and Afzal Butt, the President of Pakistan Federal Union of Journalists (PFUJ) to ascertain facts.
A NPC media release said the probe committee is mandated to recommend action if Junjua fails to prove his claim while Butt would have to provide assurances the Media Enclave has not been sold.
Asif Shabbir, Asghar Chaudhry, Aziz Alvi, and Asif Bashir Chaudhry are the other members of the committee.
The release said that Janjua had claimed the land was sold for Rs 1.36 billion.
