In the video which was widely shared on Facebook and Twitter, unknown men can be seen speaking obscenities, slapping and dragging the TV host.
Waqar Zaka was reportedly taken to a local hospital, where he was treated for minor injuries.
Speaking to media persons later, he confirmed the authenticity of the video.
“I was in a cafe for dinner at around 2am. I was alone and there was a group of eight to nine boys and girls. They started making my videos, to which I objected and asked how would they react if I did the same,” he said.
“This started the arguments. They asked me to come outside. When I walked out of the cafe, there were 10 to 12 security guards accompanying two men,” he said.
Zaka said it was a deliberate and pre-planned act.
“I went straight to Clifton police station and lodged an FIR like an ordinary citizen,” he said, adding that his hand was fractured.
