Two cameramen were subjected to torture by a security guard of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, when they were filming the PML-N supreme leader during his arrival at the parliament house in Islamabad, reported on Monday.
As per details, two cameramen belonging to private TV channels fell unconscious as they were tortured by the ousted prime minister’s guard outside the parliament house, when he reached there to attend party meeting. The injured cameramen were moved to medical facility for treatment, while journalists’ community staged protest outside the parliament house against the incident. “The cameramen were tortured, when they were covering Nawaz Sharif’s arrival at the parliament house, by his squad, this is totally unjust,” the protesting journalists said.
The sit-in at the parliament house gate no 1, demanded action against the guard involved in the torture. Back in month of August in 2017, a boy namely Hamid Chugtai, resident of Lala Musa was killed, when a car in the convoy of Nawaz Sharif hit him, as he was on way to Gujrat through GT road in a rally. Nawaz Sharif who was going to his home city after disqualification as a result of a court verdict had an ambulance in his cavalcade but none of the cars in the caravan stopped to even looked at the dead kid.
This is the reality check for #NawazSharif loving @DunyaNews owned by Mian Amir of Lahore. #NawazSharif’s personal guard assaulted their cameraman outside the National Assembly by jumping on his neck which could’ve killed him. He’s now hospitalized.pic.twitter.com/IotitdMpF8— ViiTv (@viitvdotcom) December 17, 2018
