Saulat’s wife demands arrest of ‘real murderer’

KARACHI: The wife of convicted death row prisoner, Saulat Mirza, has urged the government to re-open murder case of former KESC chief to catch real culprits, ARY News reported.

Speaking at ARY News program ‘Off The Record’ hosted by Kashif Abbassi, Ms Nighat Mirza said her family had been receiving threat calls from South Africa and Canada.

She claimed that Saulat Mirza was a driver at the time when KESC’s then chief Shahid Hameed was murdered in 1997.

To a question, Ms Nighat said Saulat started naming names when the party disowned him after much assurances.

She recalled that senior MQM leaders used to assure her family that Saulat will be released from jail as proofs against him were weak.

“After having been ditched by the party, Saulat decided to bring this party practice to a halt and he subsequently wrote confessional statement and named leaders who were behind criminal and terrorism activities,” added his wife.

She said Saulat had named Babar Ghouri in his confessional statement as Ghouri was behind foul plays in the city.
