Multan: A threatening poster pasted on the boundary wall of Multan Press Club (MPC) hurled the warning of serious consequences to the media, stirring serious concerns among the journalism fraternity here on Friday.
The MPC administration suspected that some unidentified miscreants pasted the threatening poster on the boundary wall in wee hours of Friday at around 3:30am. “One of our servants chased them but they managed to escape,” confirmed Shakil Anjum, newly-elected President of Multan Press Club. He disclosed that the poster contained a threatening message from the miscreants, claiming to hit the MPC, CPO and RPO offices at any time.
The threatening poster sent a wave of panic among the journalist community of Multan and the police beefed up security following the incident. “Keeping in mind the prevailing law and order situation, we cannot take this threat for granted,” said Shakil Anjum. He said that the journalists of Multan were not afraid of such tactics of the terrorists or miscreants, adding that it could be a practical joke but the police had still increased security and vigilance at the club.
It may not be out of place to mention here that some miscreants had displayed threatening poster at the door of Pilot Secondary School Nawan Shehr which caused panic among the students and parents.
