The trial of MQM leader Imran Farooq murder case was completed five years later, after which the anti-terrorism court reserved its verdict, which will be announced on June 18.
According to details, the case of the murder of Dr. Imran Farooq was heard in the anti-terrorism court in Islamabad to complete the final arguments of FIA Prosecutor Khawaja Imtiaz Ahmed.
The prosecutor said that there is solid evidence against the founder of Muttahida and Anwar Hussain. The accused also belonged to MQM. The accused committed a crime and should be punished according to law. Later, the anti-terrorism court reserved its verdict in the Imran Farooq murder case. The verdict will be announced on June 18.
It may be recalled that the accused in the Imran Farooq murder case, MQM Leader Altaf Hussain had refused to plead guilty while Khalid Shamim and Mohsin Ali, who had recorded the confessional statement, recanted their statements. Both the arrested accused had recorded their confessional statements to the magistrate five years ago.
It may be recalled that the doctor who performed the autopsy on Imran Farooq in the murder case of MQM leader Dr. Imran Farooq had recorded his statement in which he said that Imran Farooq died due to injuries on his face and head.
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. He died on the spot.
The British police also raided the MQM leader’s home and London office in December 2012 to investigate the case, and launched a money-laundering investigation after receiving more than 5 Lac pounds in raids.
The FIA later registered a case against Bani Muttahida and other senior MQM leaders on suspicion of alleged involvement in Imran Farooq’s assassination in 2015, and in the same year Mohsin Ali Syed, Moazzam Khan and Khalid Shamim were arrested on charges of involvement in the murder.
