A Pakistani TV station says two of its reporters have been attacked and has hinted intelligence agencies were behind the assaults.

On Tuesday, assailants hurled stones at the empty car of Dawn TV reporter Azaz Syed and locked him and his family in his house in Islamabad.

The station also said a stone was hurled at the car of another reporter as he drove in the capital earlier this month, breaking the windshield.

The station hinted at the involvement of intelligence agencies, but did not make a direct accusation. A military spokesman was not available for comment.

Pakistan has several powerful spy agencies that operate outside state control.

Dawn is one of Pakistan’s most respected TV stations.
