MQM submits list of missing party workers in SC


The Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) on Monday informed the Supreme Court that 100 of their workers have gone missing during the current year, as it submitted a list of 171 missing workers in the court.

The MQM alleged Rangers have picked up most of the workers who have gone missing during the year.

The list was submitted to the court by MQM Senator Mian Attique on behalf of the party and aggrieved families.

“Out of 100 party workers who went missing in 2016, 90 per cent have been picked up from their houses by Rangers,” said Attique. He added most were picked from their residences.

“We have lodged FIRs for all our missing party workers in respective police station of Karachi.”

The MQM senator added the list does not include the names of party workers who have been presented before a court of law.

“The court will club our list with the original missing persons’ case,” stated the senator.

The list of missing party workers contains all the relevant information including their identities, residential address and place from they were picked up, added Attique.
