LAHORE - Agha Akbar, one of the finest sports writers in Pakistan, and later a business editor died here on Sunday because of liver complications.
He had undergone a liver transplant a few months ago but problems arose following the operation and he could not recover.
Akbar spent a good part of his career at The Nation where he was the sports editor. He also had stints at the Pakistan Cricket Board, and headed its media department.
He also worked as the sports editor of Pakistan Today and later became the paper’s business editor.
At the height of his career in sports journalism, Akbar was a heavyweight and widely respected because of his exceptional writing skills and understanding of sports, especially cricket and hockey.
He traveled far and wide to cover sporting events including the Olympic and Asian Games, World Cups, and other major competitions.
