A journalist of a Sindhi newspaper known for his bold reporting against feudal lords and waderas, who was seriously injured in a gun attack a few days ago, succumbed to his wounds at a hospital in Karachi on Friday morning, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

Journalist Nasrullah Gadani was left fighting for his life after he suffered serious gunshot wounds in the attack by unidentified assailants near Mirpur Mathelo in Ghotki district on Tuesday last.

The motorcycle-riding armed men were waiting for Nasrullah Gadani and sprayed him with bullets near Kori Goth, 12 kilometres from Mirpur Mathelo, when he was on way to the town on his motorcycle at around 11:00 am.

Gadani, who received three bullets, was first rushed to Shaikh Zayed Hospital in Rahimyar Khan but later he was shifted to Aga Khan Hospital in Karachi. However, he breathed his last on Friday morning.

Local journalists in Ghotki said that Gadani, who worked for the daily Awami Awaz and also disseminated his news reports through social media, was known for being a bold journalist for his reports against local feudal lords and political personalities, waderas and government officers, which were not only published in his newspaper but were also uploaded on his social media accounts. No one had personal enmity with him but many were annoyed at his journalistic style, they said.

Police brought Gadani, who had suffered critical gunshot wounds to his abdomen and lungs, to Mirpur Mathelo hospital where doctors provided him emergency medical aid and immediately sent him to Shaikh Zayed Medical College Hospital, Rahimyar Khan, for surgery. Gadani’s condition was not out of danger yet as both of his lungs were constantly bleeding after being badly punctured and he was being resuscitated artificially.

A doctor advised shifting the patient via air ambulance to a large healthcare facility in Lahore or Karachi for better treatment.

Mirpur Mathelo SHO Sadruddin Lak said that police were looking at the incident from all possible angles with the help of technology. They had mounted a search for the suspected assailants and would nab them soon, he added.

The journalists’ community has expressed sorrow and grief over the death of Nasrullah Gadani.
