Protest against attack on journalist

NAWABSHAH, January 20 2006: Journalists of the city observed a token hunger strike here on Thursday January 19 to demand arrest of attackers of a local journalist.

The strikers were led by Akhtar Rind and Zulfiqar Ali Khaskheli. Adam Jamali, president of the Sarhari press club, had been kidnapped and tortured by some influential persons on Eid day. He was admitted to the People’s Medical College Hospital when he was found to have fractures.
