Argument with robbers during a street crime hit in Faisalabad city on Monday night cost comedian Gama BA dear.

Gama was returning home from theatre after wrapping up a stage show when two street robbers riding a motorcycle stopped him at gunpoint. According to Gama, the robbers told him to remove his coat in the chilling cold. In response, he threw a joke at them and that did not go down well with the criminals. They got angry and thrashed Gama before depriving him of cash and valuables.

“Putting off my coat in such a chilling cold was more painful than the thrashing I received from the street criminals,” Gama told a 24 News reporter jokingly after the incident.
