ISLAMABAD: Unidentified gunmen attacked the house of Dawn correspondent Azaz Syed in Islamabad on Friday. Fortunately, Azaz and his family members remained safe.
Police spotted five bullet holes on the main entrance gate of Azaz’s residence and also recovered empty pistol bullet shells from the scene.
This is the second attack on Azaz Syed’s house, the previous one being in January this year when unidentified persons threw bricks at his house and broke his car’s windscreen.
The latest attack on his house occurred around 2 am Friday when Azaz’s family members heard gunfire outside their residence after which they called the police.
Azaz Syed has been working on several important stories, most of which throw light on the role of the armed forces, the intelligence agencies and even militant organisations besides some political parties and influential personalities in Pakistan.
