NEW YORK: Pakistani authorities must thoroughly investigate the death of prominent editor and writer Murtaza Razvi, determine a motive in his killing, and apprehend all those responsible, the Committee to Protect Journalists says.
The body of Razvi, a Senior Assistant Editor and head of magazines at Dawn Media Group, was found in a friend's apartment in a relatively wealthy residential area of Karachi on Thursday (April 19), according to news reports. His body bore torture marks and his hands were tied, Dawn reported, adding that the journalist "had apparently been strangled to death."
Razvi, a columnist and political analyst for Dawn Media Group, had worked as a journalist for more than 20 years.
