LONDON: Chief Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Altaf Hussain has said that Karachi has been made a police state, ARY News reports on Monday.
In a condolence message on the death of MQM sympathizer Mairajuddin, Altaf Hussain said that the metropolis has been made a police state and the death of Mairajuddin is a clear evidence of it.
Altaf Hussain said that Police had demanded ten thousand rupees from the MQM well wisher during snap checking. He added that the police started beating Mairajuddin as he had only two thousand rupees. He suffered a cardiac arrest during the thrashing and passed away.
MQM Chief further said that the Law Enforcing Agencies (LEAs) are supposed to be a symbol of protection but they have become a representation of injustice and brutality.
He demanded the Sindh Government for the immediate arrest of the involved police officials and should be duly punished.
