MQM mistrustful of Sindh govt’s judicial commission
Addressing a press conference here, MQM leader Qamar Mansoor said a commission formed by Sindh government comprising retired judge was inappropriate.
Chief Minister of Sindh Syed Qaim Ali Shah established a judicial commission to probe the murder of two MQM workers, Sohail Ahmed and Faraz Alam, said a statement from CM House issued yesterday.
The commission headed by a retired judge of the Sindh High Court, Ghulam Sarwar Korai, is tasked with submitting his report within 10 days, added the statement.
Mansoor said a commission should be formed under a serving judge.
Speaking on the occasion, Senior MQM leader Farooq Sattar said Rangers presence in Karachi for last 25 years qualifies as a partial martial law in the province.
He said targeted operation resulted improvement in some areas of the city, while some other places plunged into more violence, he added.
It may be noted here that MQM activist Faraz Alam died in the custody of the Khokhrapar police under mysterious circumstances earlier this month. While Sohail Ahmed, who had been missing since Dec 15 last year from Ferozabad, was found shot dead in the Mochko area on Tuesday.
MQM had subsequently given mourning call across the country on December 29 while complete shut-down was witnessed in Karachi on the day.
