ISLAMABAD – The Ministry of Interior received the report of Pakistan Rangers’ (Sindh) raid at Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) headquarters Nine Zero in Karachi.
The report forwarded by the Director General (DG) of Sindh Rangers stated that the paramilitary force raided Nine Zero upon an intelligence tip-off, which remained ‘successful’.
In report it was stated that the Rangers apprehended 27 suspects from Nine Zero including three ‘most wanted target-killers’.

The DG Rangers in his report stated that the arrested suspects are being interrogated.
On Thursday Rangers produced 58 accused arrested from Nine Zero in Anti Terrorist Court 32 of whom were handed over for 90 days physical remand.
According to details, Anti terrorist court has given 90 days physical remand to 32 accused arrested from Nine-Zero. Faisal Mota, the murderer of journalist Wali Khan and Ubaid K-2 are also included in those 32.

Rangers had claimed that they apprehended nearly half a dozen target killers – including Faisal Mehmood, aka Mota, who was condemned to death by a court over his involvement in the murder of television journalist Wali Khan Babar.
MQM’s coordination committee member Amir Khan is also in the custody of Rangers for investigation.
