ISLAMABAD: Shehnaz Hamid, the widow of former MD KESC Shahid Hamid who was shot dead by Saulat Mirza, on Tuesday said that the ‘hanging of Mirza has served her family justice to some extent’, ARY News reported.

Shehnaz Hamid for the first time appeared on television, while talking exclusively to anchorperson Kashif Abbasi in ARY News program ‘Off the Record’ on Tuesday.

The widow of former MD KESC said, “Saulat Mirza’s hanging has served justice to her family to some extent”, adding, “The FIR of her husband’s killing was registered against Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM), while the police charge sheet also had the names of five accused including Altaf Hussain.”

Shehnaz Hamid said that ‘her husband wanted to streamline the then KESC, which drew opposition of a specific party’.

“He was threatened to comply with their commands if he had to stay in Karachi,” detailed the Hamid’s widow.

“My son was issued threats, his friends were asked to persuade him to pardon Saulat Mirza,” she recalled. “The MQM was afraid that if its “star terrorist” is hanged, no one will work for them.”

Saulat Mirza, who was hanged to death early on Tuesday after twice being given extension, was convicted of murdering then MD KESC Shahid Hamid, his guard Khan Akbar and driver Asharf Brohi in July, 1997.
