KARACHI (Staff Report) – Ex-mayor Karachi Mustafa Kamal has said former interior minister Rehman Malik had more access to Altaf Hussain than MQM leaders, adding that the PPP leader used to dictate press releases for MQM.

“MQM’s top hierarchy was called to Dubai and the incumbent interior minister (Rehman Malik) was also present. The leadership was briefed about what the Scotland Yard had asked them and how they had responded,” said Kamal during a fiery press conference after his return to Karachi.
