KARACHI: Sindh Chief Minister Qaim Ali Shah on Saturday said law enforcers have uncovered important leads in famed qawwal Amjad Sabri’s murder case.
Speaking during a Sindh Assembly session, the CM announced a Rs10 million grant for the late qawwal’s family and also offered Sabri’s widow a government job while claiming that he was hopeful the killers will be arrested soon.
About the recent kidnapping of Sindh High Court chief justice’s son Awais Shah, he claimed that a nine member committee had been formed to investigate the crime.
He maintained that those who committed the “heinous crime” want to harass the judiciary.
“We have announced that anyone providing information regarding Amjad Sabri or Owais Shah case will get 10 million rupees from Sindh government,” Qaim said.
Famed qawwal Amjad Sabri was shot dead on Wednesday afternoon in a targeted attack on his car by armed motorcyclists in Liaquatabad.
The 40-year-old Sabri, son of qawwali maestro Ghulam Farid Sabri, was heading to a private TV channel to perform in a Ramazan transmission when he was attacked, police had said.
On Tuesday, just 48 hours before Amjad Sabri’s murder, the Sindh High Court chief justice’s son Awais Ali Shah was kidnapped in broad daylight from Clifton.
Both incidents have raised question marks over the gains made in the Karachi operation which was started two years ago in September 2013.
