26 MQM workers killed ‘extra judicially’: Tahir Mashhadi

ISLAMABAD: Senator Tahir Mushhadi has claimed that 49 workers of Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) were missing while 26 others were murdered in extra judicial killing.

This he said during meeting of Senate’s Standing Committee on Interior, which was held Senator Talha Mehmood in the chair.

Senator Tahir Mashhadi said the innocent people are detained in Karachi while miscreants are moving freely. He said it was injustice to detain anyone for 90 days.

“Over 17000 people were arrested during the Karachi operation, however, no-one was awarded any punishment”, the Senator said and added that judicial system at lower level in Karachi was not working properly.
