LAHORE:THE Insaf Students Federation (ISF) staging a demonstration on Sunday protested against blocking of Geo News transmission in various parts of country and burning of copies of Jang and The News newspapers.

Dozens of ISF activists staged the peaceful demonstration outside the Jang and Geo offices here on Sunday to express solidarity with the Jang Group. They criticised the government for victimising Geo, Jang and The News over a report regarding hurling of shoes at President Asif Ali Zardari during his party address in Birmingham, UK, on Saturday.

The activists of ISF, the student wing of Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI), also chanted slogans in favour of Jang Group and against the government.
