By Sarmad Ali
Islamabad June 16 (http://www.pakdestiny.com) Ahead of the Supreme Court’s two-member commission’s probe into leaked off-air conversation of Dunya TV anchors Mubashir Luqman and Mehr Bohari and property tycoon Malik Riaz during an interview break, Mr Luqman has reportedly run away from the country.
A reliable source in media industry told pakdestiny.com that Mr Mubashar had run away from the country to avoid appearance before the commission.
“Mubashar fled to London after learning about the probe by the judicial commission” the source said.
Mubashir, a film-producer-turned-anchor, shot to fame for his ‘vulgar’ shows on Business Plus then he was picked up by Sultan Lakhani of Express Media Group and Amir Mahmood of Dunya TV to achieve their vested interest through Luqman’s targeted programmes.
In the latest planted interview of Riaz he and his fellow anchor Meher planed was enough to expose both of them. But Amir Mahmood could not fire the ‘charming Meher’.
A senior reporter of an English daily said: “Let’s see after this shameful episode Luqman survives as anchor. But considering the political needs of our TV channels owners it will not be surprising if he makes a comeback shortly.” – http://www.pakdestiny.com
