Video: Two arrested in Amjad Sabri’s murder case

Counter-Terrorism Department on Monday said they arrested two people in connection with famous qawwal Amjad Sabri and the other high-profile cases.

Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Shah on Monday told in media briefing that two people have been arrested in regard of Amjad Sabri murder case.

“The CTD headed by Raja Umar Khattab made a major breakthrough and arrested two people from Liaquatabad called Ishaq alias Bobby and Asim alias Capri. Their weapons were also recovered… After a probe and forensic investigation, we found proof of involvement in 28 cases.”

The men are affiliated with the Lashkar-i-Jhangvi Naeem Bukhari group, Dawn.com quoted CM Sindh. “There is no affiliation with a political party, it is a proscribed organisation.”

“Asim alias Capri was Amjad Sabri’s neighbour. We have not found any motive [behind the murder] as yet, but it seems sectarian to us because Sabri used to frequent majalis and had links to Ahle Tashi ,” he said.
