Hamid is a Pakistani journalist and editor. He is also a news anchor, terrorism expert, and security analyst who regularly participates in international conferences.
The popular editor of Geo News, Hamid was alerted by his neighbour's driver who first noticed the bomb in a black bag underneath his car.
Hamid, who reached home just after taking a ride from a nearby market, did not delay to inform the bomb disposal squad who later defused the explosives.
According to sources, the bomb consisted of half a kilogram of explosives which were locally made and comprised of a battery, a number 35 detonator and ball bearings.
Hamid, who seems to have become one of the targets of militant groups, always remains in controversies. He was banned from TV during Pervez Musharraf and Zardari-led PPP government's era in 2007 and 2008 respectively.
