Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Sunday decided to constitute a three-member judicial commission to probe into the murder attempt on leading journalist Hamid Mir.

A formal request in this regard would be sent to the Chief Justice of Pakistan to nominate three members of the commission, according to a statement issued by the Prime Minister House.

The government also announced a reward of Rs10 million for any information leading to the arrest of culprits.

Federal Information Minister Pervez Rashid met with the senior journalist at a local hospital in Karachi where he said that federal government would extend all cooperation to Sindh's government in the probe of the incident.

Rashid further said that those trying to impose their agendas at gunpoint wont be allowed to succeed.

Mir was injured after his arrival in Karachi when unknown gunmen opened fire on the vehicle he was travelling in, near Natha Khan area on Sharae Faisal road.

Doctors responsible for treating Mir reported his condition was out of danger.
