According to truck driver Sardar, unidentified men on motorcycles stopped the Jang Press circulation truck at MT Khan Road and took him to Hijrat Colony.

While narrating the incident, the driver told that the abductors took ‘Jang’ and ‘The News’ newspapers along that were later found burnt in another truck near passport office.

After getting the information of the incident, police reached the spot and controlled the blaze.

Sardar told that the miscreants quoted rift with the Jang Group as a cause behind carrying out such a malicious act.
It is pertinent to mention that some armed motorcyclists smashed windows of 'Geo News' satellite van and resorted to firing outside the office at I.I. Chundrigar road early on Tuesday morning. They had also cut-off cable wires in different areas and the technicians sent for repair were threatened.
Various journalists' organizations condemned the firing incident outside Geo News office and severing of cable network across the city. Secretary Pakistan Federal Union of Journalists (PFUJ) Amin Yousuf termed the incident as an attack on freedom of journalism and also vowed to protest. President Karachi Union of Journalists (KUJ) GM Jamali demanded swift action against the perpetrators.

A political party complained of inadequate coverage and forced shutting down channels. Upon refusal from cable operators, the network was severed affecting 70 percent of the coverage in the metropolis. The operators later held a press conference.
