MQM-London leaders rearrested after release from Central Jail
KARACHI: In a surprising development, Azizabad police rearrested Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) London leaders Professor Hassan Zafar Arif and Amjadullah Khan soon after their arrest from Karachi’s Central Jail, ARY News reported.
Amjadullah Khan and Hassan Zafar Arif were presented in Sindh High Court today which ordered their release but Azizabad police reached the city’s central prison and arrested the duo in a case registered in Azizabad police station.
Back in October, Rangers had arrested senior leaders of Altaf Hussain-led Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) Dr Hassan Zafar Arif and Kunwar Khalid Younis from outside the Karachi Press Club. Amjadullah Khan, who remained inside the press club for four hours, was arrested as he came out of the place in the evening.
Kunwar Khalid Younis was later released due to ill-health.
It is pertinent to note here that MQM-London faction is being operated from British capital while another MQM faction, MQM-Pakistan is currently working under Farooq Sattar.
The Farooq Sattar faction comprises mostly of party’s legislators, the faction gradually dissociated itself from London after MQM chief’s controversial August 22 speech.
