The killers of Amjad Farid Sabri, the famous Pakistani singer and qawwali maestro have been arrested from the Liaqatabad area of Karachi, Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah announced on Monday.

Shah claimed that two criminals Ishaq alias Bobby and Asim alias Qapri were involved in the dreaded incident and a huge cache of arms and ammunition were arrested from their possession.

Sabri had been gunned down by motorcycle-borne men near his Liaqatabad residence in June 2016 while he was traveling to a television studio.
