President ARY Digital Network Dr Shahid Masood on Tuesday arrived here in the capital and consulted veteran lawyer of Supreme Court before filing a petition against ban on the ARY NEWS.

Dr Masood, who was also accompanied by Director News ARY NEWS, Mohin Raza held consultation with President Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) Qazi Anwar, senior lawyer M. Akram Sheik to finalize contents of the petition challenging government’s unannounced curb on media channels and threats to the cable operators.
