Talking to Naya Daur’s web editor Ali Warsi, Nusrat Javeed said that he was driving to his home from G-8, Islamabad, when suddenly shots were fired at his car near the G-8 Imam Bara.
“Both the tires on the left side of my car were burst and completely damaged. Then six men in plain clothes came and inspected me… The plan was to kill me”, he said.
“They must have thought that I’d be intoxicated and die in the accident but since I was sober, they left me alone”.
The senior TV anchor confirmed that he had reached home and was safe. “Yes, I’ve come home. I’m completely safe now, have had some water too”, he said.
Javeed said he hadn’t filed a report with the police. “Which police do I report to? This Imran Khan’s police?”
He said he had ‘absolutely no’ intentions to report this incident to the police.
Earlier on December 8, Nusrat Javeed had tweeted that ‘it is 1:16am and Prime Minister of Pakistan has tried to get me killed’.
‘One of the gang of six … was the real brother of…’
It seems that Nusrat Javeed knows who his assailants were as in one of his tweets, he said that one of the gang of six that intercepted him ‘in front of the ImamBargah’ was brother of… someone he didn’t mention.
‘I know who did it’
Responding to a tweet that alleged him of falsely accusing PM of conspiring to murder him, Nusrat called for a probe.
Another Twitter user named Mishal Durrani reminded him that he could be charged for false accusations on the Prime Minister of Pakistan. ‘Please go ahead’ was Nusrat’s response.
“It was to get me killed in the name of KILED BY DRUNK DRIVING. I’m grateful to PTI trolls to prove my suspicion by their incessant tweets”, tweeted Nusrat.
Nusrat Javeed was host of a TV show ‘Bol Bol Pakistan’ but Dawn News had taken the show off air last month, citing ‘financial crunch’.

ڈرتے ہیں بندقوں والے ایک نہتے صحافی سے
پاکستانی مسولینی نے فل ماحول بنا لیا ہے فاشزم کا ۔۔۔ یہی ایک طریقہ ہے جو اس کو اور اس کی حکومت کو بچا سکتا ہے ۔۔۔
لیکن یہ سب نیا نہیں ہے۔۔
یہی جنوں کا، یہی طوق و دار کا موسم
یہی ہے جبر، یہی اختیار کا موسم
قفس ہے بس میں تمہارے، تمہارے بس میں نہیں
چمن میں آتشِ گل کے نکھار کا موسم۔۔۔
اللہ نصرت صاحب جیسے ہر آدمی کی حفاظت کرے کیونکہ اور کوئی پولیس یا ایجنسی کیونکر یہ کام کر سکے گی۔۔
Nusrat JAVED Sb is a brave and insightful journalist with a deep sense of people’s patriotism. Stay Blessed and Stay Strong Sir

Very sad incident. We hope a thorough investigation is initiated.
This is black journalism. You dont have proof, you do not want to report since poluve will find how much truth in it and still you directly accuese PM of being afraid of you when you are just one of hundreds who continuously speak agains him.
Cheers to the intellect level of the people who belive this scam for getting a media attention and promotion which were never given. Please try getting a bullet like Hamid Mir next time to claim a fame…
Condition of his car should be checked to know the reality. Too difficult to find the truth.
I believe Nusrat-Javed has a cordial relationship with Imran khan who could benefit from his journalistic wisdom.
It must be a robbery attempt by mistake, for looting female jewellery and when the culprits realised they left him alone.
NUSRAT JAVED SIR….IS A BOLD AND OUTSPOKEN WRITER AND JOURNALIST.HE CANNOT BE COWED DOWN BY SUCH DASTARD ATTACKS. STAY BLESSED SIR..WE LOVE AND VENERATE YOU. DOWN WITH GANGSTERISM OF SELECTED REGIME
Read his recent apologies on twitter…
Our country is never safe for those who ……..
Man, if I thought that the Prime Minister was out to get me and had sent armed men to do it when my tires blew, I’d talk to a therapist.
