Administrator Karachi, Barrister Murtaza Wahab on Wednesday announced immediate relief of one million rupees for the heirs of the van driver who was martyred in a terrorist incident at Karachi University.

The Administrator expressed condolences to the family of martyred van driver Muhammad Khalid Nawaz at his residence in Gulshan-e-Maymar, said a statement.

He said that the provincial government extended sympathies to the affected family and stand with them in this difficult time. “Sindh government will arrange education and sponsorship for children of the deceased,” he added.

On this occasion, the heirs of the martyred van driver requested that his body be identified as soon as possible so that the burial could take place soon. Barrister Murtaza Wahab assured them of full cooperation in identifying the deceased.
