UK police inches away to arrest Altaf Hussain: Galloway

LONDON: Member of UK parliament George Galloway on Wednesday claimed that the Scotland Yard was just inches away from arresting Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain.

In a statement, George Galloway said Altaf Hussain’s era of tyranny is nearing its logical end.

Galloway said he had, in the past, warned the MQM chief of lodging a case against him in UK but now such a move is no longer needed.

He advised the MQM chief to abandon the practice of ‘murders and creation of chaos’ in Karachi from his ‘base’ in London.

George Galloway is an elected member of British parliament from Bradford West – a Muslim majority area.
