Imran Farooq murder case: British investigators arrive in Islamabad

ISLAMABAD (Web Desk) - A five-member team of British investigators has arrived in Pakistan’s capital to investigate the high-profile murder of Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) leader Dr Imran Farooq.

The team includes three investigators, one translator and an associate.


Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan had earlier said that Pakistan has given a go-ahead to the British authorities to investigate the suspects of Imran Farooq murder case, who are under custody of the Pakistani institutions.

British investigators will be questioning the suspect Mohsin Ali and later under the light of his statement they will cross-examine another suspect named Moazzam Ali, who was arrested from Karachi a few months ago.


Sources said following the investigations by the team, British authorities may ask for handing over these suspects to them, but for that Pakistan will be formally requested.

Pakistan and United Kingdom (UK) have complete understanding regarding the case and chances are bright that the suspects can be handed over to UK if a formal request is made.


Imran Farooq was found murdered near his home in North London on 16 September 2010.
