The journalist’s family members, President Arif Alvi, Sindh Governor Imran Ismail, Saeed Ghani, Aleem Khan, Dr Farooq Sattar, Amir Khan, Hafiz Naeemur Rehan and a large number of people attended his Namaz-i-Janaza.
Athar’s brother Tariq Mateen has urged the journalist fraternity to unite against his brother’s murder. Tariq Mateen in an interview held the Sindh government, Rangers and police responsible for his brother’s death and spoke of a peaceful protest outside the Nazimabad SP office.
The grieving brother questioned the authorities about the unrest in Karachi due to rising street crimes.
He accused the law enforcement agencies of being involved in the crime. “The robber who shot Athar seemed to be a trained shooter as he had taken a single fatal shot.”
