Sindh Minister for Human Settlement Ghulam Murtaza Baloch died of coronavirus on Tuesday.

He had six children.

The 56 years-old Baloch had remained under treatment at a private hospital of Karachi for last month after contracting the coronavirus.

He was put on ventilator for some days but later his health condition improved.

Baloch had reportedly caught the deadly viral disease while carrying out relief activities in District Malir and Gadap areas of the city during the lockdown.

He was elected member of the Sindh Assembly from the constituency of PS-88 Malir Karachi.

He had also earlier served his constituency as MPA.

Ghulam Murtaza Baloch was also president of the PPP District Malir.

He had also served as Sindh labour minister as well.

Previously, Baloch had twice served as nazim of Gadap Town in the now-defunct city district government.
