Quetta—A DawnNews and Aaj TV cameramen also became the victims of Quetta suicide bombing targeting a hospital as they were performing their duty on Monday.
DawnNews Quetta bureau chief Syed Ali Shah confirmed the passing of Mehmood Khan, whom he described as a dedicated, young, God-fearing man who is survived by four children.
Mehmood was also the guardian to his brother’s three children, Shah said.
He added that Mehmood joined DawnNews several years ago as a security guard. He showed his interest in working in the newsroom and was soon given the role of a non-linear editor. For the last two years, he was working as a cameraman for DawnNews.
An ambitious young man, Mehmood was preparing to apply for admission to a Masters in Mass Communication. Several media personnel were present at the hospital to cover the protest. Another cameraman from Aaj TV, Shehzad Khan, was also killed in the explosion.
