ISLAMABAD: A dramatic scene was witnessed outside the Supreme Court when journalists started protesting against Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) leader Anusha Rahman for allegedly snatching mobile phone of a journalist, Azam Gill, working for a private TV channel.
Anusha Rahman allegedly threatened the reporter with 14-year imprisonment.
Journalists lodged protest against Minister for IT Anusha Rehman’s action and raised slogans during media talk of PML-N’s leaders.
“Anusha Rehman was briefing me about court’s proceedings when this journalist started making video upon which she snatched mobile phone of the reporter and informed him that bringing cell phone inside Supreme Court (SC) is banned”, said Minister for Railways Khawaja Saad Rafique.
The protesting journalists refused to let Minister for Railways Khawaja Saad Rafique address the media, shouting him down despite his repeated attempts to speak.
As a shouting match broke out between PML-N ministers and journalists, State Minister for Information Marriyum Aurangzeb said that protest is not solution to this problem.
She invited all the journalists to her office to settle the dispute.
