Journalists continue protest over newsman’s ‘murder’

NAUSHAHRO FEROZE: Leaders of various organisations of journalists proceeded to Mehrabpur on Tuesday to offer condolence on behalf of their community to the bereaved family of Aziz Memon, a reporter whose body was found floating in a canal a few days back.
