KARACHI: Chief Minister Sindh Murad Ali Shah Tuesday said the provincial government would soon catch journalist Aziz Memon's killers, as pressure from the federal government and journalists mount on the Sindh government to solve the alleged murder of the journalist. 

"We will soon get a hold of deceased journalist Memon's killers," CM Shah said while addressing a press conference.

The chief minster condemned Memon's death and said that he was carrying out his duties fearlessly. "The video [in which Memon says his life is under threat] is old. Memon was carrying out his journalistic duties independently," he said.
