MQM Pakistan likely to be interrogated in munitions recovery case
KARACHI: The Sindh government has decided to form a Joint Investigation Team (JIT) on recovery of a huge cache of munitions from Azizabad. Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Pakistan is highly expected to be interrogated in this incident, ARY News reported.
ARY News reporter Nazeer Shah said police sources have confirmed that the law enforcement agencies have been activated to unearth weapon storage in different areas of the city.
The sources said a JIT was formed for investigation of the ammunition, while interrogation from MQM Pakistan leadership is being mulled.
Investigation sources said it was the largest recovery of munition in the history of Karachi.
The law enforcement agencies on Wednesday captured a large consignment of arms and explosives in the city kept hidden in the water tank of a house in Azizabad.
The arms and munitions have been transferred to the army’s ordnance depot for forensic analysis of the weapons to know whether they were used in the incidents of crimes and terrorist attacks, official sources said.
The weapons were transported in two police trucks and five mobile vans from DIG West office to the army’s ordnance depot.
Sindh Police has sought help of the army for the weapons analysis due to lack of modern facilities in the police department, sources said.
The police experts could not analyse the sub-machine guns (SMGs), rocket launchers, Bazooka, G-3 rifles, LMGs and anti-aircraft guns, sources further said.
