ISLAMABAD: Former singer turned televangelist Junaid Jamshed has registered a case against eight unknown men for assaulting him at the Benazir International Airport.
According to his statement, “Seven to eight men attacked me at the airport. I don’t know them personally but I can identify if they come in front of me. Police and airport security protected me and took me home.”
Junaid received kicks and blows by a small group of men just as he was leaving the airport on Saturday. The group chanted slogans against Jamshed before beating him up. A security official came to his rescue and led him back to the safety of the arrival lounge at the airport.
A video of the incident that became viral on social media showed Jamshed asking the crowd to talk to him instead of resorting to violence.
Provoked by his fellows by chants of “Maaro, maaro (beat him, beat him)”, a man could be seen chasing Jamshed and kicking him before Junaid disappeared into the arrival lounge.
