Jehan Pakistan sacks reporters, newsroom staff in Islamabad

ISLAMABAD—Urdu newspaper Jehan Pakistan has fired four reporters and about seven newsroom staffers in Islamabad.

An insider tells JournalismPakistan.com that an administration official phoned up the employees on Friday to inform them their termination letters were ready for collection.

Eight years after the paper rolled off the press, the management now reportedly plans to have only an online edition.

Earlier in March, the paper terminated about 12 employees, among them reporters and newsroom staff.

The managers have promised payment of all dues to those sacked on Friday, which includes three-month wages.
