Presence of political party HQ near weapons dump will raise questions: CM Sindh

KARACHI: Chief Minister Sindh Murad Ali Shah on Saturday, while speaking on the huge cache or arms and ammunition discovered in Azizabad, said that it was obvious that questions would be raised due to the presence of the headquarters of a political party nearby.

“The house is close to the headquarter of a political party, therefore questions are being raised about the ownership of the weapons dumped there,” he said.

The Chief Minister refused to give further information but said that it was possible that the weapons may be used for terrorist activities, or hidden there by some terror outfit. He said that an inquiry has been ordered and all questions will be answered after it.

The weapons were discovered from a vacant house in Block 8 Azizabad , which is close to now-sealed Nine-Zero headquarters of the Mutahida Quami Movement.

Murad rebuffed a question about Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan and said that he can do whatever he wants, while they are here to work for the development of the city and the province.

Later he met Inspector General Sindh AD Khawaja and instructed to strictly implement the security plan for the month of Muharram. He said that he will make unannounced trips to several police stations across the city.
