ISLAMABAD - Journalist and political analyst Nusrat Javeed survived an attempt on his life Saturday after unidentified shooters fired at his vehicle.
Naya Daur reported that the incident happened near an Imambargah in Sector G-8 as he headed home.
Quoting Javeed, the website said both the left side tires of his car burst as a result of the firing. “Then six men in plain clothes came and tried to take me away. The plan was to kill me.”
“They must have thought that I’d be intoxicated, but since I wasn’t, they left me alone,” he was quoted as saying.

He later got home safely and then tweeted: “Imran Khan the Prime Minister of Pakistan tried to kill me here and now. But I mstill alive."
In another tweet, he said: “And in my case it was not THREAT but attempts to EXECUTE a well thought out plan. Period.”
