KHUZDAR – Four years after the cold-blooded murder of journalist Ijaz Mengal, the killers remain free and his family awaits justice.
Ijaz was gunned down on February 14, 2014, in Khuzdar, Balochistan when on his bike on the RCD Road.
His elder brother, Riaz Mengal, an ex-president of Khuzdar Press Club and a senior journalist told JournalismPakistan.com that police and the provincial government had done nothing significant to arrest the murderers.
Khuzdar has been termed a graveyard of journalists where eight media persons have been killed in as many years.
Riaz was kidnapped in October 2007 because of his work. He, however, managed to escape after 56 days in captivity. He continued to receive death threats and later had to flee his home town along with his family.
Riaz regretted that none of the journalists’ killers in Khuzdar has been arrested. "Our families remain in constant fear," he said.
He pointed that after his brother’s murder, the family received threats not to bury him in Khuzdar. “We had no choice but to bury him in interior Sindh.”
