Detention of Qadir Patel denied
The Rangers sources have said that interrogation of Abdul Qadir Patel has been continued and clarified that the PPP leader was not taken into custody neither transferred to some undisclosed place for investigation.
Earlier, some sources close to Patel had claimed detention of the PPP leader and his transfer to an undisclosed place by the Rangers officials after completion of the interrogation session.
The Rangers sources, however, denied detention of Qadir Patel.
Qadir Patel had confessed before the Rangers earlier today that several PPP leaders had been taking help from Lyari gang war leader Uzair Baloch.
Patel was summoned by the Rangers today for interrogation into Dr. Asim case.
According to sources, investigators grilled Patel with several key questions, but the PPP leader could not come up with satisfactory answers.
The Rangers officials asked him: “how do you know Uzair Baloch?”
Patel replied that several PPP leaders met him in the past and sought help in different matters. He said he had a close contact with Baloch.
When asked about murder of PPP’s Khalid Shahenshah, who was said to be key witness in Benazir Bhutto murder case, the PPP leader said he had no idea about the murderers.
Investigators threw volley of questions on Patel including his alleged involvement in murders, extortion, transfer of money into his accounts.
