01 May, 2015
KARACHI: MQM leader Haider Abbas Rizvi on Thursday categorically denounced the “baseless allegations” levelled against the party by Malir SSP. “This is political drama unfolding,” he said. “For how long will this blame game continue? MQM is the country’s third largest political entity. I don’t even want to respond to such heinous allegations,” he said. Rizvi said, “There is nothing new in the allegations hurled at us today by a corrupt mid-career police officer.”
“This is all repetition. Not even the central figures in the story have changed over the years,” he added. Rizvi said it was a lie that MQM worker Junaid was arrested on Wednesday night, saying he was detained on March 24, and his family filed a petition in the Sindh High Court on March 28 for his release. “Tahir alias Lamba was not arrested last night; he was held on February 26, and the very next day his wife approached the Sindh High Court against his illegal detention,” he added.
