UK demands suspects involved in Dr Farooq murder

03 February, 2014

LONDON: British authorities on Sunday formally wrote to Pakistan demanding handing over of suspects in murder case of Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) leader, Dr Imran Farooq, who was assassinated in London in 2010.

According to a private TV channel reports, in a 20-page letter to Federal Interior Ministry, the London Metropolitan Police claims that trail of the MQM leaders' murder goes to Pakistan.

Media reports added the Interior Ministry also confirmed that the letter has been received. They said that London police authorities have requested Pakistan to hand over two suspects Mohsin Ali Syed and Kashif Khan Kamran to UK for further progress into the investigation.

The two men arrived in London in February 2010 and September 2010, respectively. Both of them left UK to Sri Lanka soon after the murder of Dr Farooq. They arrived in Karachi where they were arrested by Pakistani authorities.

UK authorities want DNA samples of the two samples to match them with the murder weapon.

Dr Farooq was on his way home from work when he was attacked outside his home in Green Lane, Edgware, London, shortly before 17:30hrs on September 16, 2010.

Dr Farooq, 50, died as a result of multiple stab wounds and blunt trauma to the head. A five and a half inch-bladed kitchen knife and a house brick used in the attack were recovered at the scene.

A reward of up to 20,000 is being offered for anyone providing information leading to the identification, arrest and prosecution of those responsible for Dr Farooq's murder.
