Government orders confiscation of Altaf Hussain's property in Pakistan
Islamabad: The trial in the murder case of slain Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) leader Dr Imran Farooq has been completed five years later.
Major progress has been made in the murder case of Dr Imran Farooq and the anti-terrorism court has reserved its verdict.
FIA Prosecutor Khawaja Imtiaz Ahmed, while concluding the final arguments, said that the accused also belong to MQM. The perpetrators should be punished according to the law.
The FIA prosecutor asked the court to order the government to confiscate the movable and immovable property of Bani Muttahida in Pakistan. The court said that it has already issued the order and now you should start the process of confiscation.
The court reserved the verdict in the murder case of Dr Imran Farooq which will be announced on June 18.
Dr Imran Farooq was on his way home from his office in London on September 16, 2010 when he was stabbed to death with a knife and bricks outside his home near Green Lane.
After the assassination of Dr Imran Farooq, unidentified persons took to the streets in Karachi and set fire to shops and vehicles.
Despite the incident in London, in 2015, at the behest of then Federal Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan, the FIA registered a case against Bani Muttahida and other senior MQM leaders on suspicion of involvement in the assassination of Imran Farooq. ۔
Kashif Khan Kamran, Mohsin Ali Syed, Moazzam Khan and Khalid Shamim were named as the main accused. Mohsin Ali Syed, Moazzam Khan and Khalid Shamim were arrested in 2015 while Kashif Khan Kamran is still absconding and is said to have died.
