    KARACHI: Renowned Qawwal Amjad Sabri was gunned down on Wednesday by unknown assailants in Karachi, police and hospital officials said.

    Sabri, 39, was travelling with an associate when two gunmen on a motorcycle opened fire on the white Honda Civic car in Karachi's Liaquatabad neighbourhood.

    According to police officials, Sabri was shot multiple times and succumbed to his wounds on his way to a local hospital.
    "Sabri suffered several bullet wounds. Five bullet shells have been recovered from the crime scene," said Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Central Muqaddas Haider.

    Amjad Sabri was pronounced dead upon arrival at the hospital, said a senior health official.

    His associate, Saleem Sabri, was severely injured and also rushed to the hospital for medical treatment. Saleem Sabri's relation to Amjad Sabri could not be confirmed.

    According to reports, Sabri was heading for the studio of a private television channel along with his brother Saleem Sabri to take part in the Iftar transmission when he was attacked.

    Taking notice of the incident, Sindh Home Minister Suhail Anwar Siyal confirmed that the renowned Qawwal has been killed.
    Amjad Sabri was the son of renowned qawwal of the 1960’s, Ghulam Farid Sabri, and the nephew of qawwali icon Maqbool Sabri who passed away in 2011.

    Maqbool Sabri along with his brother, the late Ghulam Farid Sabri, formed a formidable qawwali group in the mid-50s and became known for their soul-stirring renditions of arifana kalam (mystic poetry). Some of their most memorable and famous qawwalis include Bhar Do Jholi Meri, Tajdar-i-Haram and Mera Koi Nahin Hai Teray Siwa.
