Imran Farooq murder case: One of Altaf Hussain’s houses searched for 55hrs


In connection with Dr Imran Farooq’s murder investigation, Metropolitan Police Counter Terrorism Command Unit on Thursday concluded a 55-hour search in two North West London “residential addresses” – one of them belonging to Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain, reported a private TV channel.

The New Scotland Yard, which raided the houses on Tuesday, ransacked both the apartments during the painstaking search.

According to sources, Altaf is the proprietor of one of the two houses, which the police combed for more than two days leaving no stone unturned.

Dr Farooq, the former convener of the MQM, was stabbed to death outside his home on September 16, 2010 as he was returning home.

It has been learnt that the raid started on Tuesday, June 19 at around 6am at two important addresses in the area close to where Dr Farooq was killed in Edgware, London.

When approached, a spokesman of the Metropolitan Police confirmed that officers from the MPS Counter Terrorism Command, “executed search warrants at two residential addresses in north-west London as part of the continuing investigation into the murder of Dr Imran Farooq on September 16, 2010”.

There have been many searches but no arrests have been made as yet.

The UK Police are investing Dr Farooq’s murder on several lines, including one strong line of investigation that he was in discussions with his colleagues and members of the public to start his own independent political career.

The raid in London at two important addresses was seen as highly important as Dr Farooq’s third death anniversary approaches.

These searches were carried out under the Police and Criminal Evidence Act (PACE).


  1. Arrest Altaf, bring him to Pakistan, hand him over to a couple of Talibans and see how quickly he starts confessing to hundreds of murders. I guarantee.

    • So you think Taliban are good? What a moronic comment. MQM is a terrorist party, but so are the Talibans. Jahil insaan.

    • Altaf is a coward.He will be dead before he is handed over to Taliban.It will be due to a massive ass attack.As far as Waqas 's comment,well there could n't be a more "moronic comment"

  2. wait for right investigation, scottland yard is capable authority. once proved then no one get escape.

  3. MQM Terrorist Mafia Don, Altaf Hussain killer of innocent pakistanis should be arrested and sent to Pakistan to face the court and should be hanged publicly.

    • I think it is not a good idea,in Pakistan he will be free soon if arrested,political partties PPP & even PML-N can not bring this DON to justice. MQM most Killers get awarded by GOVT Positions,like SINDH Governor.

  4. MQM was declared as a terrorist organisation in Canada. Yet it continues to spread terror from London and South Africa, killing thousands of innocent Pakistanis in Karachi, destroying our economy, and collecting Bhatta worth billions of rupees monthly. Why has Scotland Yard taken so long?.

    • In Charter of Democracy signed in London between BeNazeer Bhuto,Nwaz Sharif,JUI-F, Imran Khan,& all other political decided not to include MQM as this a terrorist party,but after Benazeer Assassination Zardari for his vested intrests made an alliance with MQM just to save his Govt.

  5. I think we all know this but still read this and make up your own mind.
    > > Regards,

    I’m also an Urdu speaking individual, my grandparents made a lot of sacrifice and migrated to Karachi , Pakistan from India . Karachi was a city of lights until nearly 30 years back when MQM started showing its true face. I will tell you how MQM works and I have experienced all of this myself.
    This is a very well managed organization which works under a tight command and control mechanism. They have divided Karachi into number of sectors; each sector is divided into units. The first tier is called the unit. There are MQM units in every nook and corner of Karachi . Every apartment complex has one unit, and nearly on every 500 houses there is a unit. The units report to a particular sector under which they come. Each unit has a unit in-charge and other proper posts. As these guys live among us hence they know each and every house and shop that come under their supervision. The unit in-charge literally controls whatever goes within the jurisdiction of his unit. From cable person

  6. From cable person reporting to him to the SHO of that area every one obeys that unit in-charge. They snatch mobiles, get bhata from shops, get their students cheated in exams, confiscate Skins at Eid Ul Azha and collect fitra on Eidu ul Fitar. The collections from units goes into millions and collection from Karachi goes into billions on daily basis.
    > > The units report and submit their loot to the sectors, each unit in-charge has to sit in sector on frequent basis from where they get instructions. The sectors report to Nine Zero (90 is the address of the house of Altaf Hussain in Azizabad Karachi) this is headquarter of MQM. This is the reason that within minutes they can jam Karachi as they just need to make one call from 90, the instructions go to sectors where they call unit in-charge who have complete arms and ammunition. No Karachite can stand in front of them as they easily and without mercy kill. If they want to threat someone, they write on their house wall " Jo Qaid ka ghadar hai who mot ka haqdar hai

  7. Fallowing their footsteps other parties such as ANP, Aman committee of PPP and suni tehreek now is doing the same. Sometime the fight starts that who’s units will control the area. Karachi is a gold mine and everyone wants it.
    > > The people of Karachi who are very patriotic have to live in constant fear. They cannot even carry a decent cell phone in this city. They get looted in the ATM machines and believe me that people do not even decorate their houses now a days during Weddings as they are afraid to come in the eyes of these bandits. Even now and then there are strikes; children cry during night due to gunfire, if a call is not for a strike, the call is for “Yoom e Soog” which infect is another name for strike. One cannot image what Karachite have to go through on daily basis. One even gets afraid driving a car when a motorcycle goes from nearby.

  8. The real disappointment is that everyone knows this, as this is so clear.The erosion of business (MANUFACTURE IN PARLYSIS,IMPORT/EXPORT SICK) share of its GDP growth ZERO,Minimum or lack of jobs in this city, The police, the rangers, the army are aware of this but they do not take action, hence are equally part in it. May be they don't want to make MQM angry as they have seats in the national assembly. How they get these seats is, they hijack complete polling stations, they ask their boys to either stamp on kite themselves or someone stands beside them when the person is about to stamp on his choice. This time when people wanted to vote for PTI they did not let them, at some place they did the thapa themselves, at other they did not let the polling start, at others there were boys standing inside the booth monitoring and they even closed the gates of apartments when fearing that the residents will vote against them .

  9. The people of Karachi wanted to exercise their right to vote but alas they were not allowed. MQM again claims that they have the mandate ( False Mandate) of Karachi , And Alas all urdu speaking are called MQM people by other people of other provinces. Is every Pathan an ANP supported, No, Similarly every Urdu Speaking is Not an MQM supporter.
    > > The most depressing situation is that for Karachi this means the situation will remain the same for another next 5 years and may be even after. The ECP, the police, the army are all part in it. As they closed their eyes on what was going on. More over this again means more seats for MQM and hence the vicious circle starts again.
    I equally blame first THE BUSINESS COMMUNITY, ANP, Aman committee, Suni Tehreek in this as they are similar vultures like MQM trying to rip the flash out of the each and every citizen of Karachi . More over MQM threatens the Urdu speaking people that if we do not support them and the other gundas will hurt us and our women and children. Hence it is better to come under protection on a bigger Gunda to save one self from many small gundas. In the absence of police and law enforcement agencies the people of Karachi are helpless.

  10. Sorry my dear Karachi , you have been thrown into another next 5 years of turmoil, bhata Khori,AGHWA BARAE TAAWAN, strikes and worst of all fear, extreme fear. You had a choice to go for PTI this time and you tried your level best to vote, even people came from abroad to cast a single vote, but how can they compete against thapa mafia which works under the supervision of administration, police, army and ECP. Everybody heard what Altaf said but not a word of condemnation from Army, administration and ECP. Army was most vigilant in standing for few of its corrupt generals, but will never say anything against Altaf.
    The only solution to all this was clean up across the board, with any criminal belonging to any cast creed and race, belonging to any political party big or small, should be sent to the gallows.

  11. This is want Imran Khan was saying, this is why we as Karachite supported Imran but were not allowed to exercise our right to vote. This is why we under great threat and death threats are still protesting. But we know there will be no help.
    But remember everyone there is a power above all, US KAY HAN DAIR HAI ANDHAIR NAHI. US Ki LATHI BE AWAZ HAI.
    > > (Before making a judgment about what was written here, please think for one minute and ask your heart if any of this is a lie)
    Please share, and spread the plight of a Karachite.
    We feed our minds daily with knowledge, yet let us not forget to feed our spirits daily with truth.
    To Allah we belong, to Him is our return

  12. Anyone notice that Pakistan Media is not saying whose houses in London are raided & why-Media is Scared of this Don -They tell his news before the prime minister but nothing against him.
    Now this CROTON Peer has to say that british police is against Muhajirs. After Killing Farooq ,he was acting & crying now MQM leader & supporter are quiet about this RAID. If Altaf did not Killed Farooq then he & all his supporter should be happy that police is getting close to CO-FOUNDER of MQM killer.

  13. MQM Terrorist Mafia Don, Altaf Hussain killer of innocent pakistanis should be arrested and sent to Pakistan to face the court and should be hanged publicly.

  14. Our media has different standards about MQM. Most of anchors mock at political moves of MQM. When MQM decides to leave the government, media wants that they should never comeback even if the causes of separation removed. When Altaf resigned on moral grounds the news caption was “MQM chief Altaf Hussain takes back his resignation”.
    Moral grounds are no grounds in Pakistan politics. Media wants that MQM should do tailor made politics according to media. Why media itself does not take active part in politics and contest elections?
    Should MQM seek guidance from media?

  15. When MQM Terrorist Mafia Big Boss Altaf Hussain killer of innocent pakistanis will be arrested and the court will give him Capital Punishment.
