KARACHI: Unidentified masked men on Saturday have attacked media personnel with batons and deprived them of their cameras, NewsONE reported.

Earlier, an anti-terrorism court (ATC) granted extension to the protective bail of former home minister Zulfiqar Mirza till June 02.

ATC refused to extend the bail of Mirza in abstentia after which Mirza appeared before the court.

Mirza’s lawyers had pleaded the court to exempt their client from appearance to secure bail.

His bail in a case registered at Darkahsan Police Station had expired yesterday.

Heavy contingent of police reached the court before arrival of Zulfiqar Mirza.

Unidentified masked men carrying arms took several guards of Mirza into their custody and smashed windowpanes of his vehicles.

On this, Mirza filed another petition in the court against detention of his guards.
