KARACHI: Rangers have arrested the security in-charge of MQM headquarters Nine Zero. The paramilitary force said that Minhaj Qazi has confessed to have killed KESC managing director Shahid Hamid and numerous other people.

“The Rangers have arrested a notorious militant wing’s most wanted criminal – Minhaj Qazi alias Asad,” said a Rangers statement issued on Wednesday. “He (Qazi), during initial interrogations has also revealed several target killings including a murder of managing director of KESC Shahid Hamid.”

The Rangers have taken his 90-day preventive custody after producing him before an anti-terrorism court on Wednesday.

The Rangers’ law officer told the administrative judge, Justice Farooq Shah, about grilling Qazi under Section 11EEEE of the Anti-Terrorism Act contending that the paramilitary force have credible information against the suspect for his involvement in target killings, kidnappings, extortion and other crimes.

The court allowed the paramilitary force to take the suspect for interrogation with direction to form a JIT within 15 days.

Qazi came into spotlight after the March 11 raid at Nine Zero, in which the paramilitary force claimed arresting several suspects involved in terrorism. He was said to have escaped from there.

He has non-bailable warrants issued against him in a case pertaining to harbouring criminals and facilitating terrorism.

MQM in a press statement issued on January 29, had condemned the arrest of Qazi saying he was arrested during a Rangers raid at Garden locality.
