KARACHI: The Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) on Saturday arrested a suspect in connection with the murder of Amjad Sabri in a pre-dawn raid, three days after the famous qawal was gunned down in broad day light.

The suspect was taken into custody in a raid carried out in Surjani Town area and shifted to an undisclosed location for interrogation.

The CTD claimed the suspect is affiliated with a political party and has made "significant revelation" about the murder of Amjad Sabri .

The anti-terror officials involved in the investigation declined to disclose the name of the suspect and the political party he was affiliated with.

Sabri was travelling with an associate when two gunmen on a motorcycle opened fire on his car on Wednesday. He  was shot multiple times and pronounced dead by medics at a hospital where he was taken after the attack.
