KARACHI Veteran journalist Abu Talib Nizami, better known as A.T. Nizami, passed away, his family and friends said on Saturday.

He was 88.

“He tested positive for Covid-19 a few days ago and was in self-isolation at home but his health deteriorated and he died on June 25,” said his wife Nuzhat Nizami. He was buried at the Tariq Road graveyard off Shaheed-e-Millat Road. Mr Nizami worked for several newspapers at senior positions including Dawn Media Group’s daily Hurriyat as its city editor.
