Some two years back, I had met late Alamgir Bhetani. In that first meeting in Peshawar I found him to be a sober, polite and well-informed journalist who was earning his keep reporting from the tribal area. He was only forty-three years old when he died leaving behind a widow, two daughters and a son. Originally from the Bhetani tribe of district Tank, he had once also contested the election for Naib Nazim from his district which he lost by a very thin margin. He had migrated some three years back to Peshawar due to constant threats on his life. Alamgir Bhetani served the Voice of America radio in the last four years of his life. He had also worked as a correspondent from the tribal area for daily Dawn and as a reporter of Reuter and Samaa television. May Allah bless his soul. -SUDHIR AHMAD AFRIDI, Islamabad, May 29.
