A judicial magistrate on Monday ordered police to arrest Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan leader (MQM-P) Farooq Sattar and four other party leaders for violating the loudspeaker act.

The court also directed the police to produce the accused in court by July 9.

In 2015, the police registered a case against nine leaders of MQM-P and nearly 2,000 ‘unknown MQM men’ for violating the said act. The arrest order was also issued for Nasreen Jalil, Haider Abbas Rizvi and Faisal Sabzwari.

The party held a rally on MA Jinnah Road against the arrest of party workers, particularly during the Rangers raid at the party’s sector offices where nearly a dozen workers, including the party’s sector and unit in-charge, were arrested.

The case was registered at the Soldier Bazaar police station on behalf of the state.
