Sindh Governor Imran Ismail on Saturday confirmed the martyrdom of seasoned journalist Syed Ansar Ali Naqvi – Senior Director Current Affairs and Programming at 24NewsHD.
During a visit to his residence in Karachi, the governor informed his wife MPA Begum Rana Ansar about the sad demise, saying there were only two survivors of the PIA plane crash and there was no hope of any other person staying alive.
