Ansar Naqvi, Senior Director Current Affairs and Programming at 24NewsHD who left for his heavenly abode after a plane crash in Karachi on Friday, has left behind a treasure of memories for the family, friends and colleagues.

Those who have worked with him are missing him badly. Here’s what some of our most senior journalists have to say about the late Ansar Naqvi.

Senior journalist and political commentator Najam Sethi says Ansar Naqvi was such a humble and polite person that it’s difficult to forget him.

TV anchor and senior journalist Naseem Zehra says anyone coming to see Ansar Naqvi was important for him.

Editor and senior journalist Khushnood Ali Khan says Ansar Naqvi was a professional journalist and he had mastered what he was doing.

Senior journalist and political analyst Nasir Baig Chugtai says he made a lot of big achievements in collaboration with Ansar Naqvi.

Naqvi was going to his native city of Hyderabad to spend Eid holidays with his family. His wife Begum Rana was present at the airport to receive him when she received the news about the plane crash.

Naqvi had initially decided to travel to Hyderabad by road as his seat on the ill-fated plane had not been confirmed, but later he boarded the plane when his seat was confirmed on the eleventh hour.
