KARACHI: Pakistan Rangers Sindh on Wednesday apprehended a ‘target killer’ involved in the killing of Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) MPA Manzar Imam, ARY News reported.

According to details, paramilitary personnel nabbed the hitman during a raid in Taisar Town area on the outskirts of megapolis.

In a press statement, the Rangers spokesman said that the suspect Muhammad Ashiq, who too belongs to MQM, was produced before an Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC) today, where the court remanded him in Rangers custody for 90 days.

It added that ‘Ashiq has confessed to have killed Manzar Imam and his guards’.

He also admitted killing 12 other people associated with rival parties, the statement read.

It is pertinent to note here that MQM MPA Manzar Imam was killed along with three of his bodyguards in an assassination attempt in Orangi Town on January 17, 2013.

Here it is also worth a mention that outlawed Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), shortly after the assassination of Manzar Imam, had claimed responsibility of it.
