CPNE concern over attack on printing press of Masood, Mujib

LAHORE- The Council of Pakistan Newspaper Editors (CPNE) has expressed deep concern over the attack on the printing press of Mujib-ur-Rehman Shami and Masood Shorash in Islamabad.

Presiding over a meeting of the local members, Senior Vice President Jamil Athar stressed the government to hold high-level inquiry into the matter so that the culprits could be brought to book. He said that despite passing so many days, no arrest was made and the police has miserably failed to nab the culprits. Mujib-ur-Rehman Shami explained the details of the incident to the meeting.
