KARACHI: Family of late iconic qawwal Amjad Sabri has decided to leave Pakistan for fear of their safety, ARY News reported.
Brother of Amjad Sabri, Azmat Sabri said all his family wanted to shift to London for protection of their lives.
“Although, we have spent all our lives in this city, but we now consider ourselves insecure. Our lives are at stake in Liaquatabad (following the murder of Amjad Sabri),” he said while exclusively talking to ARY News.
Amjad Sabri was assassinated on June 22 in the month of Ramazan. He was travelling from his home to a television studio when armed motorbike riders pulled up beside his car and opened fire on him.
Azmat Sabri said he would apply for visa through former chief justice Iftikhar Chaudhry. He also appealed from the government to bear their expenses to go abroad.

Sabri’s mother also sought help from the government to go abroad.
Another Sabri brother, Talha Sabri has expressed his desire of seeing the killers of Sabri hanged till death publicly and on the same spot they killed his brother.
