MQM founder refuses to answer London police questions
LONDON: Altaf Hussain, the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) founder, has refused to answer the questions inquired by the officials of Scotland Yard’s counter-terrorism Command Unit.
As per details, the interrogation of the MQM founder started at 10 pm on Tuesday night and continued for two hours at the Southwark Police Station.
ARY News reported that the MQM leader only confirmed his name, date of birth and his residential address in front of the London police. Afterwards, on the advice of his lawyer, Hussain declined to respond to the questions and chose to go for “no comment” option to all questions asked by the police officials.
The sources informed ARY News that the interrogation was stopped at midnight after Hussain complained of chest pain.
It is expected that Hussain may be charged for the offense later today, sources added.
The founder of MQM was arrested on Tuesday when Scotland Yard raided his London residence. Hussain was taken into custody over a 2016 “anti-Pakistan” speech.
