SURAT: A Surat-based journalist (37) with a weekly was killed in front of his wife and their 3 daughters in broad daylight. Four people first rammed their car into Junaid Khan Pathan’s motorcycle and then stabbed him.

Pathan was on his way with his wife and three daughters- aged 10, four, two-and-a-half-years-to meet relatives in Shahpore Vad. When they were crossing the busy Jilani bridge, a car hit his bike from behind and the family fell on the road. Four people immediately got down from the car and stabbed Pathan in the back with a knife.
