Hamid Mir ‘felt threatened’ by intelligence


ISLAMABAD: TV journalist Hamid Mir who was shot at least three times in Karachi said Thursday he “felt threatened” by intelligence agencies in the days leading up to the attack.Mir is still recovering in hospital but his brother Amir Mir read a statement from him on Thursday evening saying intelligence officials had visited him a few days before the shooting to tell him his name was on an unspecified “hit list”. “I insisted that they should let me know about the people who had prepared this hit list, but they did not reveal that,” Mir’s statement said. “I told the intelligence officials who came to my house that in present conditions I feel threatened by the ISI.” No-one has claimed responsibility for shooting Mir, who escaped another assassination bid in 2012 when a bomb was found attached to his car.
