In the video, the presenter asks the panellists, “Do you think it’s easy for extremists to cross the border in a group?” While he continues to speak, a loud popping sound is heard in the background. However, before anyone could make out where the sound came from, a ball of fire falls on the anchor. The anchor then quickly leaps out of his chair. The cause of the fire hasn’t been ascertained as yet.
This is not the first time when a Pakistani news channel has made headlines. Earlier, an unfortunate botch-up by the Pakistan Television Corporation (PTV) landed Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan at the mercy of trolls on social media after the channel ran ‘Begging’ on its location label instead of ‘Beijing’ while Imran Khan was speaking live from the capital of China.
