Man held in Karachi for impersonating journalist
KARACHI: Police on Sunday claimed to have arrested an imposter in the Defence Housing Authority for carrying several cards of media organisations and getting affixed a ‘press’ sticker on his car.
The Gizri police on late Saturday night signalled a car (ACM-278) in Defence to stop. As the vehicle stopped, the driver identified himself as Ghulam Rasool and started using foul language and threatening the police.
He said he was a ‘journalist’, but upon verification it transpired that he was a ‘fake’ media person, said Gizri SHO Rizwan Hyder.
The police claimed to have recovered over six ‘press cards’ and hashish from him.
