LAHORE: A journalist was allegedly attacked by an unidentified man here on Wednesday, according to police.
In the first information report (FIR), a copy of which is available with Dawn, registered with the Ghaziabad Police Station on Thursday, Ambreen Fatima, the wife of journalist Ahmad Noorani, claimed that she and her two children left their house at 8pm on Wednesday.
Ms Fatima’s husband recently published a story on leaked video of a former chief justice of Pakistan.
“When we reached an adjoining street, an unidentified man raced towards our car and struck the vehicle’s windscreen three to four times with an iron object with an intention to cause me harm,” she said in the FIR registered a day after the incident. She said the man also hurled death threats at her before fleeing from the spot.
The complainant, who worked for daily Nawa-i-Waqt, said she did not have any enmity with anyone. She urged police to provide her with protection.
Police confirmed the incident had taken place on Wednesday night, adding they did not receive information on the 15 helpline.
“An investigation was initiated when the woman in question came to the station with the car,” they said, adding a case had been registered against an unidentified person.
