Columnist getting death threats

Columnist and political analyst Khalid Ansari of the Jang Group has appealed to the Sindh Police to provide security for him. In a letter to the IG, Sindh, he has claimed that he has been receiving threatening phone calls from people identifying themselves as security personnel. The abusive phone calls with the caller/callers threatening to kill the columnist and members of his family, began after he began writing articles against the incarceration of judges and lawyers. Most of the calls have come from unknown numbers although one call he received began with the digits 01999. He has also lodged a complaint at the Mithadar police station and an initial report has been filed.
