The injured journalist was moved to a private hospital, where his condition was stated to be stable. Narrating some of the details of the incident, Mr. Toor said through the video that the attackers had asked him about the source of his funds.
Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry took notice of the incident and ordered the Islamabad police chief to probe the matter.
The journalist was accused of defaming the military last year and also faced a court case in this regard. According to the FIR, Mr Toor had allegedly indulged in propaganda against Pakistan and its institutions on social media for long.
However, the Lahore High Court absolved him of the charges after the FIA police told the court that no evidence was found to support the charges.
