Unidentified men thrash journalist Asad Toor

Journalist and blogger Asad Toor was brutally assaulted by unidentified men at his home in Islamabad Tuesday night.

Toor was later shifted to the hospital after attackers broke into his house and roughed him up. The Islamabad police is investigating the incident.

Federal Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry instructed Islamabad SSP to investigate the incident and bring the guilty to book.

A CCTV footage shows three masked men leaving Toor’s house after attacking him.

In the video, an injured Toor can be seen walking out of the apartment with his hands and feet tied, calling out for help.

Reacting to the episode, PML-N spokesperson Marriyum Aurangzeb said the attack was reprehensible, saying that the government should ensure security for journalists instead of giving lectures on the protection of journalists.

The government has failed to bring the accused to justice, Aurangzeb said.

Toor received support from politicians and others on social media and has been trending on Twitter as well.
