Pak Journos Arrested for Disclosing 26/11 Terrorist's Address
Two Pakistani journalists were held in police custody since November 10 in a police station in Punjab province. They claims that they were arrested for trying to know more about to the lone terrorist captured during November 2008 Mumbai terrorist attack that left nearly 100 people dead.
It is learned that the two journalists were officially charged with theft and fraudulent appropriation of funds.
Two Pakistani journalists arrested for allegedly misappropriating a press club's funds have claimed that authorities are "teaching them a lesson" for helping reporters trace the family of Ajmal Kasab, the lone terrorist captured alive during the Mumbai terror attacks.
The arrested journalists - Rab Nawaz Joya and Javed Kanwal Chandru - belong to Depalpur sub-division in Okara district of Punjab province, where Kasab's hometown of Faridkot is located.
Joya and Chandru are the president and general secretary of the Depalpur Press Club. They were recently arrested on charges of allegedly misappropriating the Press Club's funds and attempting to steal a car.
However, Joya and Chandru told reporters that authorities are "teaching them a lesson" for assisting Pakistani and foreign journalists in tracing Kasab's family and home last year.
