The MQM con­demned the killing of So­hail Ahmed, a worker be­long to the party’s So­ci­ety Sec­tor. Ahmed was found dead in Machko area.

The MQM has ap­pealed the traders to keep their busi­nesses and shops closed on Thurs­day to show sol­i­dar­ity with the party.

Ad­dress­ing a press con­fer­ence, MQM leader Khawaja Izharul Has­san said body of So­hail was dumped in the lim­its of Mochko po­lice sta­tion.

“Post-mortem re­port sug­gested that So­hail was shot twice…one in the head and the other in the chest” Has­san told me­dia.

It was not the first in­ci­dent of “ex­tra­ju­di­cial killing”, he said, adding that MQM is be­ing sub­jected to po­lit­i­cal vic­tim­iza­tion for rais­ing its voice against tar­get killings.

Has­san de­manded army chief take no­tice of “ex­tra­ju­di­cial killings” of the party work­ers.

In a sep­a­rate press state­ment, MQM chief Altaf Hus­sain con­demned the “ex­tra­ju­di­cial killing of So­hail Ahmed.”

“The num­ber of MQM’s work­ers killed ex­tra-ju­di­cially has reached 36,” Hu­sain said.

It is per­ti­nent to men­tion here that So­hail Ahmed had been miss­ing for sev­eral days. A case was also reg­is­tered at Ba­hadurabad Po­lice Sta­tion about his sud­den dis­ap­pear­ance. NNI
