Amjad Sabri’s murderers arrested: CM Sindh
The minister said two criminals Ishaq alias Bobby and Asim alias Capri involved in Amjad Sabri's murder had been arrested from the Liaqatabad area of Karachi. A large cache of weapons was also recovered from their possession.
"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, the chief minister said. "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.
Karachi police have claimed to have solved four high-profile cases.
Counter Terrorism Department (CTD) carried out raids across Karachi and arrested five criminals.
The arrested criminals are involved in the murder of police and military police personnel and those who attacked a Majlis in the Nazimabad area. A large cache of arms and ammunition was also recovered from the criminals.

Amjad Sabri was gunned down earlier in June by a motorcyclist near his Liaqatabad residence. He was on his way to a television studio to attend a Ramazan transmission when the incident took place.
