Dr Imran murder case: FIR to be lodged under Pakistan, says Nisar

Islamabad: The officials at federal government has issued a directive in reference to registering a case into the murder of MQM leader Dr Imran Farooq in Pakistan against three accused which are already confined under the custody of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA).

Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan, while addressing a press conference held at Punjab House yesterday, said that, “In the light of the investigations conducted so far in Dr Imran Farooq murder case, it has been decided that FIA would register an FIR (first information report) in Islamabad in this case against the three accused.”

According to the sources, Nisar Ali Khan said the directive had been taken after British authorities did not manage to seek the extradition of all three to UK for their onward trial there.

Nisar further said that, “After this development, either all these will have to be set free or a case should have been registered against them here.” He also added that, “This is a high profile murder case that had international implications.”

The three accused in the case are identified as Moazzam Ali Khan, Mohsin Ali and Khalid Shamim who are currently on a 90-day remand under the authority of FIA. A joint team of Scotland Yard as well as FIA had already investigated all three in the last some months following the government had authorized to pass their access to the former in order to investigate them.
