K arachi: Unknown armed men have opened fire at the headquarters of Aaj TV, wounding two employees of the private television channel.
Four unidentified men, riding on a motorcycle, approached the Aaj TV office and opened fire on Monday night.
Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) has claimed responsibility for the firing attack, saying that it was a reaction to improper coverage provided by Aaj TV to ‘Jihadi’ activities.
TTP’s spokesperson, Ehsan ullah Ehsan said that Aaj TV had launched a propaganda campaign against the group after the recent attack on security forces in Dir.
An AK-47 was used for the incident; the unidentified armed men emptied the entire magazine and fled the crime scene.
The injured were taken to Abbasi Shaheed hospital, where they were reported to be stable.
Advisor to Prime Minister on interior affairs, Rehman Malik has ordered an inquiry into the incident, and sought preliminary investigation report from Karachi police chief.
