GHALANAI, 7 November: Mohamand Agency based journalists have demanded of the government to arrest the killers of slain tribal journalist Zaman Mehsud and award them exemplary punishment otherwise they threatened, would extend their protest movement to Peshawar and Islamabad.
The journalists condemned the killing of Mehsud in their meeting held in Ghalanai Press Club. The protesters were of the view that FATA-based journalists had been facing great difficulties while performing their duties but the government had miserably failed to provide them protection. “If Mehsud’s killers were not arrested, we would be left with no option but to stage sit-in in front of Governor House in Peshawar and Parliament House in the federal capital,” threatened Gul Muhammad Mohmand, one of the participant of the protest demonstration.
Zaman Mehsud was killed by unknown persons in Tank district on November 3.
