Reporter facing life threats

MANDI BAHAUDDIN: For broadcasting a report on a private TV channel regarding human trafficking from here, a reporter is facing life threats on phone. Syed Manzar Sajjad lodged a complaint with DCO Tariq Chaudhry about the threats and the DCO has assured him provision of complete security and support. He claimed that the report was based on facts, saying it might have irked the human smugglers and the FIA officials as well as the immigration department.

Sajad urged journalists’ fraternity to support him in fight against those playing havoc with lives of innocent youth. Many youth were taken abroad via Iran for employment against receiving heavy amounts from their parents and en route they died in containers due to suffocation and some of them drowned in the sea while travelling on boats, he added.
