Mahmud Hossain, an investigative reporter for Channel-9 was attacked by six outlaws last night in the capital's Rampura area.
He filed a case against six people at Khilgaon Police station mentioning name of two assailants - Monir and Lebu Mia.
Mahmud Hossain said that he was attacked by the outlaws while he was returning home on a motorcycle. While crossing the Rampura Bridge, two of the assailants started attacking him when he refused to share the ride with them and four others later joined in on the attempt on his life, he added.
Taimur Hassan Shuvo, a colleague of Mahmud told The Business Standard that, the attack was carried out on Mahmud's life due to an investigation programme on an illegal online TV, that was aired on Channel 9.
He further added that, the case is being influenced as a high official of police is pressuring the victim to exclude Lebu's name from the case.
