Fire broke out at SAMAA TV head office

The SAMAA TV's head office situated in Karachi caught fire today (Thursday). The channel's transmission went off-air due to the fire in its transmission and power units. The last transmission on-air was around 7:00 am. The transmission of the channel will be resumed within a few hours, as soon as the fire is under control.

It is important to mention here that the channel has been receiving threats from the extremist elements for its aggressive reporting and initiatives against extremism in the country. SAMAA also ran a special report last night on the Mumbai Blast and the internal involvement of the Indian security forces in it.

The details and cause of the fire are under investigation and both the federal and provincial security agencies have been asked to investigate the matter.
