Journalist and anchorperson of Geo TV Hamid Mir on Friday appeared before the judicial commission in Karachi appointed to inquire into the attack on him on April 19. Geo TV released footage of Mr. Mir — who is recovering from bullet wounds — leaving a hotel in a wheelchair and getting into a car with assistance.
A three-member judicial commission comprising Supreme Court judges is conducting the inquiry into the attack when gunmen fired six bullets at Mr. Mir as he was on his way to his office in Karachi. His brother Amir had laid the blame on the head of the ISI which was denied by the Inter Services Public Relations. Geo has also got notices from the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority and faces suspension of its transmission.
Earlier there were reports that Hamid Mir refused to record his statement before an ISI official. He had to undergo extensive surgery for some of the bullets to be removed and his full recovery is expected to take some time.
