Sarmad Sabri demands COAS to bring perpetrators to justice

KARACHI: Brother of qawwal Amjad Sabri, Sarmad Sabri on Thursday demanded the Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Raheel Sharif to bring perpetrators of attack to justice.


Speaking to media this morning, Sabri dismissed media reports about death threats, saying “he was a pious man, he didn’t receive any death threat.”

Sarmad said protecting citizens’ lives was responsibility of the government. ‘You can catch killers of Amjad Sabri, abductors of Sindh chief justice’s son… but who will safeguard millions of other citizens,” he asked.

He further said this government holds responsibility to protect lives each citizen – from the affluent to the poor.

Teary-eyed Sabri said such people were not born daily. Vaccum created after his death is unlikely to fill, he added.

Amjad Sabri, aged around 45, was travelling by car from his home to a television studio, when a motorcycle pulled up alongside the vehicle and the attackers opened fire.

Sabri was hit by five bullets and was declared dead at Abbasi Shaheed Hospital.
