“He was shot in the chest and head and he was shifted to Abbasi Shaheed hospital immediately, where he succumbed to his injuries,” a police official said. His driver and associate were also killed in the targeted attack, the official said.

According to reports, Sabri was heading for the studio of a private television channel along with his brother Saleem Sabri to take part in the Iftar transmission when he was attacked.

Reports suggest that violence is common in Karachi despite a sharp decline in murders since the Pakistani Army launched a crackdown two years ago against suspected militants and violent criminals.

Amjad Sabri was the son of renowned Qawwal Ghulam Farid Sabri whose family is famous in the subcontinent for their contribution to this sufi art and mystic poetry.
