ISLAMABAD: A cameraman belonging to a private television channel was injured Monday when he was attacked by former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s security guards.
Video footage available with Geo News shows Wajid Ali, a cameraman working for private news channel Samaa TV, filming Sharif as he was leaving the Parliament House when security guards attacked him.
The video shows the guards chasing cameraman, who ran to save himself but was finally overpowered and brought to the ground with kicks to the face.
The cameraman was bleeding from the nose and mouth and shifted to Poly Clinic hospital in an unconscious condition.
Later, journalists caught one of the guards before he could escape and handed him over to the Parliament House security. Another guard managed to flee.
Journalists held a protest sit-in outside the parliament building against the incident, blocking Parliament’s Gate No.1 entrance.
