MQM in distress as UK released pictures of Dr Imran Farooq’s alleged killers


LONDON – The Britain police has moved much closer to the murderers of Mutahidda Qaumi Movement (MQM)’s leader in exile, Dr Imran Farooq, and released the pictures of those involved.

Scotland Yard went one step ahead, Tuesday, and claimed the the accused were in fact under custody of Pakistani authorities.

The news has sparked distress in MQM lines as they were already in an on-going protest to show solidarity with their supremo Altaf Hussain because British authorities had sealed his bank accounts.

The names of the accused were said to be Mohsin Ali Syed and Mohammed Kashif Khan Kamran. It was also reported in summers of 2013 that these two accused were in Pakistan and had traveled to London on student visas.

In January, United Kingdom (UK) prosecutors had asked Pakistan to trace the two suspects.

Dr Imran Farooq was believed to be the right hand of Altaf Hussain. However, some sources privy to MQM claim that he had developed some differences with the party over times and that could be the reason behind his murder in September 2010.
