The police were given two weeks to file allegations against MQM-L men
The anti-terrorism court administration judge on Monday gave police two weeks to file a lawsuit against three members of the Muttahida Qaumi-London (MQM-L) who were arrested for allegedly operating the Indian Research & Analysis Wing (RAW) network in Karachi.
The judge returned Shahid, Majid and Adil Ansari from pro-Altaf Hussain MQM-L in court custody and directed investigative officers to file a challan against them in the next hearing on April 20. The city police chief claimed on March 19 to have foiled the great potential of the terrorism plot when they damaged the local RAW network operated by militants affiliated with MQM-L.
Additional Inspector General of Police (Addl IGP) Ghulam Nabi Memon said that there were reports about RAW’s involvement in terrorism in Karachi, about MQM-L running a local network of intelligence services and about the possibility of them carrying out major terror activities in the metropolis at any time.
“We found during our investigation that MQM-L terrorists who received militancy training in India were the ringleaders of the RAW network in Karachi,” Memon said during a speech at a press conference at the Karachi Police Station in Saddar.
“The ringleader is involved in terrorism here with his MQM-L colleagues on RAW’s instructions. He has contacted the former APMSO [All Pakistan Muttahida Students Organisation] “Chairman Mehmood Siddiqui, who has been in India for the past years on the RAW payroll, and used to send funds through hawala to carry out terrorist activities in Karachi,” he said. The group also remained in contact with the famous MQM-L terrorist Safdar Baqri in Canada, he added.
The IGP Addl said the group had been assigned by RAW to provide funds to various terrorist groups in Karachi to carry out terrorist activities, to store bombs and other weapons and supply them to different terrorists, to gather information about sensitive installations of the city, including those of security agencies and intelligence, and share it with intelligence agencies and provide updates on the political situation in metropolitan cities.
He said the group also used to give RAW special funds to Khalid Shamim, the main suspect in the murder of Imran Farooq, adding that their bank transactions had been traced.
