Pakistani journalist  Nasrullah Gadani, who was shot at and wounded by armed assailants in Mirpur Mathelo a couple of days ago, died at a hospital in Karachi on Friday.

Forty-year-old Gadani, who was associated with Sindhi language daily Awami Awaz, was initially treated at a hospital in Rahim Yar Khan from where he was airlifted to Karachi for further treatment, reported Dawn News.

After the body of the journalist was transported to his hometown in a helicopter, people stopped at certain spots and paid homage to him when he was transported from  Karachi to Mirpur Mathelo.

After the post-mortem process was  completed, the body was taken to his native village Qabool Gadani for funeral prayers.

He was laid to rest in a local graveyard in the presence of large number of people.

A large number of people blocked the National Highway and staged a protest in front of the office of the SSP for the arrest of his killers, reported Dawn News.
