Just hours before his execution, Mirza alleged in a video confessional that he killed former KESC Director Shahid Hamid on the directives of the MQM chief.

“The Sindh government has never facilitated any criminals," the minister said.

He also urged the Sindh governor to respond to the allegations leveled against him by Mirza.
