ISLAMABAD: (Web Desk) - Interior Minister Chaudrhy Nisar Ali Khan has on Tuesday said that the legal reference against Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain will be handed to British police within next few days, reported Dunya News.

Interior Minister met British High Commissioner in Pakistan Philip Barton and discussed Imran Farooq murder case with him.

In his meeting with the British High Commissioner, Chaudhry Nisar discussed the mutual ties between the two countries, regional situation and important matters concerning Britain and Pakistan. Proceedings of Imran Farooq murder case also came under discussion on this occasion. Interior Minister said that Pakistan and Britain shared exemplary relations.

Earlier, Chaudhry Nisar had said that recent statements by Altaf Hussain had crossed all the limits. He had told that this time a legal reference will be sent against MQM chief, not just a letter. He said that Altaf’s case is not political; it is legal.

Interior Minister said that Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan took references to UK against Altag Hussain but to no avail. He said that the government provided proofs to UK about Altaf Hussain with a proper strategy.
