Rangers release MQM's leader Aamir Liaquat Hussain
KARACHI (Web Desk) - Renowned media celebrity and MQM party member Aamir Liaquat Hussain has been released by the Rangers here on Tuesday after preliminary investigations.

Amir was taken into custody on Monday night following an anti-Pakistan speech by MQM supremo Altaf Hussain. Along with Amir, Farooq Sattar, Sajid Ahmed, Khawaja Izhar Ul Hassan and Amir Khan were also detained.

Talking to a local television, Amir Liaquat expressed that his meeting with Director General Rangers went pleasant and he was treated politely.

'They offered Tea, Biscuit and treated me well. I kept writing throughout the night, unable to comment more as I'm sleepless', he said.

The media celebrity added that he was very sad and could leave Pakistan any time.

Dr.Farooq Sattar, Khawaja Izhar Ul Hassan have already been set free by the authorities. Farooq would be holding a press conference in a short while to disclose the future strategy.

Earlier on Monday, hundreds of Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) attacked the offices of different TV channels in Karachi, after MQM chief Altaf Hussain asked them to protest against the censorship of his speeches in the media. One person was killed and several others were left seriously injured, as a result.
