Paracha, a defense correspondent at 92 News was asked to hand over his office ID card by the HR manager as he arrived at work one day last April. No reason was given and he was told to leave.
Paracha was with the channel for about seven months.

I don’t know if this happens to you but every now and then I receive a letter from a lieutenant of a former despot who has $250 million with him which he needs to park and he is willing to give me half. This is usually on messenger and once in a way on email and somehow passes the safety net of the junk mail docket.
