KARACHI: Journalist Iqrar Ul Hassan got beaten up by Intelligence Bureau (IB) officials for exposing corruption.

According to the reports, Iqrar Ul Hassan got beaten up badly while exposing the corruption video of the Director Intelligence Bureau (IB). The Director IB Rizwan Shah and his team attached the anchor.

Iqrar Ul Hassan was immediately taken to the Abbasi Shaheed Hospital where several stitches were placed on his head.

After the incident, five IB officers, including Director IB Rizwan Shah, have been suspended on the directive of the Prime Minister’s Office. The suspended officials include stenographer Mehboob Ali, Inam Ali, sub-inspector Rajab Ali, and head constable Muhammad Khawar.

Taking to Twitter, senior journalist Hamid Mir wrote, “The Intelligence Bureau recalls a time when such treatment of journalists and political activists was carried out in Lahore and Islamabad. Pakistan still stands where it stood 30 years ago. Violence against Hassan is highly reprehensible. This era is worse and more shameful than the previous ones.”

Waseem Badami also shared his remarks on this horrible incident. He said, “Who is responsible for this confession?
When all this happens to people who are considered more influential than the common man, what will not happen to the common man?
This meant that the perpetrators also believed that they would do whatever they wanted and that no one could harm them.”
