SP's MAI - - INTERNAL SECURITY -

Re­cently, the UK Home Sec­re­tary Theresa May greeted a dou­ble-mur­der sus­pect from Pak­istan in her home of­fice which has been termed as a shock­ing case of se­cu­rity fail­ure. Re­ports said that Nasir Butt, a na­tive of Pak­istan, had moved to UK in 1996 af­ter he was ac­cused of mur­der­ing his two brothers and that a Pak­istani court had con­demned him to death.

The UK Home Sec­re­tary who was un­aware of his an­tecedents shook hands with Nasir Butt, who is said to have ‘man­aged to slip’ in with two of­fi­cial Pak­istani del­e­gates who were on a pre­ar­ranged visit. Sub­se­quently, the Home Sec­re­tary de­manded ex­pla­na­tion for the se­cu­rity lapse.

Ac­cord­ing to re­ports, Butt who came to UK in 1996 has been granted asy­lum and he runs a dry clean­ers and fur­ni­ture store.
