Mirza claimed that he had received ‘direct orders’ from MQM chief Altaf Hussain to gun down the then KESC chief Shahid Hameed in 1997.
In a press conference today, MQM leader Barrister Farogh Naseem asked why Mirza did not make any such controversial statements during his case trial.
He asked how a person could change his version after recording a first statement in the crime.
He maintained that Mirza’s allegations hold no legal value.
Naseem said Mirza never made any such statements in the past, hence surfacing of such claims at this juncture was fabrication of truth.
He said the Interior Minister is a nice person. “What is this going on Chaudhary Nisar sahib?” asked the MQM leader.
If the government, he said, doesn’t like MQM then it should take measures that have some substance and truth.
He went on to ask that who ordered recording of an statement of Saulat Mirza hours before his execution. Barrister Naseem said it’s a blatant violation of law to level baseless allegation on a political party without any proof.
Speaking on the occasion, Barrister Saif – a newly elected Senator – said even legal fraternity was terming the case a violation of laws.
