Unidentified masked men attacked resident editor of the Pakistani daily Jang and left him injured near Western Ford Colony in Multan, media reported Sunday.

Zafar Aheer was attacked Saturday when he was moving back home after his job, Geo News reported.

Aheer said the attackers stopped his car near his residence and started beating him, the report said.

"The attackers beat me a lot, tore my clothes and snatched my mobile phone," Aheer was quoted as saying.

The attackers threw bullets in front of Aheer's car before escaping the site.

Police said that it is pre-mature to say anything at this moment about the incident.

Investigation into the matter has been started.

The injured resident editor of Jang, an Urdu newspaper, said that the attackers were talking to each other about shooting him in the legs.

"They called me an agent of India and Jews, and a traitor," the editor said.

"I am Pakistani and love Pakistan," Aheer added.
