KARACHI (Dunya News) – Nasrullah Gadani, a journalist who suffered a gunshot wound in an attack in Mirpur Mathelo taluka of Ghotki district last Tuesday, succumbed to his wounds in a Karachi hospital on Friday. 

Gadani, who was always critical of feudal lords in his reports, belonged to Mirpur Mathelo. 

Hospital sources confirmed the death of the journalist. 

On Tuesday, Gadani was shot and injured by unidentified attackers in Mirpur Mathelo. He was first transferred to Sheikh Zayed Hospital in Rahim Yar Khan for treatment, but was later shifted to a private hospital in Karachi on the instructions of Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah. 


Following the death of Nasrullah Gadani, journalists and members of civil society staged a protest demonstration outside the SSP office, causing a severe traffic jam on either side of the national highway. 


Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah has expressed deep sorrow and grief over the death of Nasrullah Gadani. 

The CM said the Sindh government shifted Nasrullah from Rahim Yar Khan to Karachi by air ambulance but he could not survive, said a statement from the CM’s House.

“I am deeply in grief and sorrow along with Nasrullah’s family and media organisation he is affiliated with,” Shah added.

The chief minister also offered condolences to the bereaved family members over their loss and prayed for the departed soul to be in eternal peace.
