Accused for masterminding May 12 mayhem




KARACHI: Member Provincial Assembly (MPA) Kamran Farooqui of Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) was taken into custody by a law enforcing agency during a raid conducted in the wee hours of Thursday at his residence in North Nazimabad.

Farooqui, who was elected MPA from PS-111 constituency of Karachi’s downtown area, was asleep at his residence when law enforcers conducted a raid and took him to an undisclosed location.

Party insiders have said that Kamran Farooqi is being accused of being involved in May 12 mayhem as well as murders of Lyari’s notorious gangster Uzair Baloch group members during ethnic clashes in 2012 between MQM and Lyari.

Farooqui is likely to be produced before an anti-terrorism court in a day or two, said the sources.

Earlier in June, Rangers surrounded MQM-Pakistan chief Farooq Sattar’s residence in PIB Colony looking for Kamran Farooqui and abolished the raid over his absence. The party was also called by Rangers to send him to the Rangers Headquarters to record his statement but Farooqui had gone missing before the splitting of MQM.

Though neither Rangers nor have the police disclosed his apprehension, MQM-Pakistan has expressed its concerns over Kamran Farooqui’s arrest, saying that he should not be subjected to torture during custody and should be provided with all legal assistance.

“This is not a first time when our assembly members or leaders have been arrested in fake cases of May 12 carnage, but one by one all of them have been released from courts,” said party’s spokesperson.

The spokesperson demanded his release and also not to implicate false cases against Farooqui.

This is nothing but a political move and soon he will be release. Rangers should stop these kind of actions and it will help MQM to get victim votes and help MQM to raise again.

Nobody is above than law, also we can't allow anyone to continue terrorist activities in Karachi. Even if he is MPA or MNA.

Now MQM has no place in Pakistani politics.
Mustafa Kamal and Farooq Satar must unit under the ledership of Musharraf as they give rise to a new political alliance "Muttahida Pakistan".
