KARACHI: Senior journalist Kamran Khan on Saturday announced to resign from the Bol channel as its President and Editor-in-Chief.
Later, Chief Executive Officer of the media group Azhar Abbas and senior anchors Asma Sherazi and Iftikhar Ahmad also announced their dissociation from the media group.
Kamran Khan had earlier committed on air that he would resign from the channel if the fake degree scandal against Axact proved to be correct.
In a tweet, Kamran Khan announced that it was impossible for him to continue with the channel and, therefore, he had decided to resign. “Charges against Axact far from proved in court but my conscience (is) not letting me (to) continue. I’ve decided to disassociate (myself) from Bol immediately,” Khan said in a post that appeared on Twitter.
Earlier, Kamran Khan had tweeted that he was discussing the situation with other senior journalists associated with Bol and would decide after reviewing the situation. Around four hours after the tweet, Kamran Khan announced to resign from the channel.
It is pertinent to mention here that the company owning the Bol channel, Axact, has been hit with a deadly fake degree scandal.
On Monday, the New York Times (NYT) broke a story claiming that Axact was involved in selling fake degrees across the globe.
