KARACHI: Chairman Pakistan People’s Party ( PPP) Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said that those involved in the murder of journalist Aziz Memon should be arrested immediately and the administration should pursue the case impartially and without favor to anyone.
In a statement, he strongly condemned the murder of Aziz Memon, whose body was recovered from a canal near Mehrabpur town of district Naushahro Firoz.
The PPP Chairman expressed his deepest sympathies with the bereaved family, saying he understood the pain of every family who had lost a loved one to brutal violence and that he assured the family that justice would be served.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that the PPP would not compromise the safety of journalists and said that the PPP had always had a clear stance on media freedom and protection of journalists.
In a tweet, Federal Minister for Science & Technology Ch Fawad Hussain said he had raised the issue of brutal murder of Aziz Memon at every platform. He said he walked out from the assembly on the PPP’s opposition to independent investigation into the murder.
“PPP’s opposing the independent inquiry was a clear indication of the elements behind the assassination. The murder investigation will never be free under the Sindh government,” he said.
