PM takes notice of Nazim Jokhio’s murder

On Saturday, Prime Minister Imran Khan took notice of the murder of Nazim Jokhio, a young man, whose body was found from the PPP MPA Jam Owais’s house in Karachi’s Malir district.

This was confirmed by Sindh Governor Imran Ismail after visiting the residence of Nazim Jokhio in Achar Salar, Malir, to meet the family of the deceased and express condolences.

Talking to the media he said “I visited Nazim Jokhio’s residence on directives of PM Imran Khan,” adding that the premier had taken notice of the incident and investigation committee would be formed by the Centre to probe Jokhio’s murder.

"Jokhio was brutally murdered, while the influential suspect was rescued," he said. "There are some names in the FIR, but the names of the real culprits are missing," he added.

He went on to say that heirs of Nazim Jokhio have raised reservations over the inquiry being conducted by the provincial government, adding that they have also rejected Joint Investigation Team (JIT) formed by the Sindh police in the Nazim Jokhio murder case.
