MQM had staged sit-ins in various parts of Karachi including Chief Minister House, Numaish Intersection and Teen Talwar against the arrest of the party workers.
MQM Sindh Assembly member Faisal Sabzwari, while speaking with media, said that 15 out of 23 detained workers have been released. He hoped that rest of the arrested workers will be released soon.
Sabzwari also said that MQM is a peaceful party and will cooperate with law enforcing agencies in arresting the criminals in the city.
He added that the party supports the ongoing targeted operation in the city but will not accept oppression in the name of operation.
