Senior officials have confirmed to a private media outlet that a six-member team of London Metropolitan police are in Islamabad to question suspects involved in MQM leader Imran Farooq’s murder.
Farooq was bludgeoned and stabbed to death near his home in Edgware, North London, on September 16, 2010 as he was returning home after finishing work at a local pharmacy.
Last week, Islamabad decided to allow British investigators access to three suspects in the case in the custody of its agencies.
“The six-member team of the London Metropolitan Police is going to interrogate the key suspect, Moazzam Ali Khan, who was shifted from Karachi to Islamabad last week,” said a senior official of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA).
The team members, Claire Margaret, Taylor Keith, Stuart James, David Walter Smith, Garry Martin and Samantha Lewis, are staying in Islamabad.
