Important leads uncovered in Sabri’s death, claims Pak
Sindh province Chief Minister Qaim Ali Shah said progress has been made in Sabri’s murder investigation.
“The law enforcement departments have uncovered important leads in the murder of Amjad Sabri,” Shah said in a statement to the provincial assembly.
He assured the House that the killers of 45-year-old Sabri, who was fatally attacked on Wednesday in Karachi by two unidentified bike-borne gunmen, will be arrested soon.
The chief minister announced a compensation of 10 million rupees for Sabri’s family and said his wife will be offered a government job.
The Tehreek-e-Taliban Hakimullah Masood group, which has said it was against any form of Sufism, has claimed the attack on Sabri.
Since Sabri’s killing, grief and anger have gripped Pakistan with TV channels and the print media highlighting the state of lawlessness in the country’s largest city Karachi. Police have so far been unable to arrest the gunmen behind the attack on Sabri, who was shot in the chest and head.
