LONDON (Web Desk) - A 12-year-old boy has identified the prime accused, Mohsin Ali, in the murder case of Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) leader Imran Farooq, said media reports on Wednesday.

The boy, who was seven year old at the time of Imran Farooq’s murder, told London Police that the attackers had made other children, playing near the crime scene, flee before committing the crime. The murderers attacked the MQM leader with knives and bricks, he said in a statement with police.

During the visit of Scotland Yard to Pakistan, the boy had identified Mohsin Ali Syed from his photos and now authorities are all set to present him in the court as prime witness to the crime.

The police has recorded statements of other four witnesses as well.

Meanwhile London Police is also expected to arrest few more people in connection to the murder case in the light of information provided by Mohsin Ali.

Mohsin Ali Syed is currently under detention of Pakistani security agencies. Pakistan granted exclusive access to him for investigation into Imran Farooq's murder case. He is also likely to be handed over to British authorities if a formal treaty between both countries to exchange detainees is reached.

Earlier media reports claimed that Mohsin Ali Syed had confessed to murdering MQM leader Imran Farooq along two other companions during the investigation of Scotland Yard.
