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.
The video shows the guards chasing the cameraman, who ran to save himself but was eventually overpowered and brought to the ground with kicks to the face.
The cameraman was bleeding from the nose and mouth and shifted to the 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.
