Furthermore, the MD of the channel has also been removed.

Pakistan Television Corporation (PTV) was airing a live broadcast of prime minister Imran Khan from Beijing when they accidentally spelt Beijing as "Begging".

The official order by the ministry read that the acting charge of Colonel (r) Hassan Immad Mohammadi, Director PTVC as Managing Director is withdrawn with immediate effect and further orders.

During the telecast of Khan's address on PTV, the location was misspelled from "Beijing" to "Begging" in the top left corner of the screen. "Strict action has been initiated under rules against concerned officials".

However this was not before the mistake, which reportedly remained on screen for 20 seconds, was ridiculed on social media. The broadcaster later apologised via Twitter, calling the incident "regrettable".
