Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain has said he would report to the Central Police Station in London as the bail he had secured in the money laundering case expires today (Tuesday).
Addressing a crowd at the Jinnah Ground late Monday night via telephone, Hussain said: “I shall take Allah’s name and go to the police station.
The rest is in His hands.” He requested his party’s workers and supporters to pray for him.
The MQM chief said the Supreme Court had pointed out in its judgement that every political party in Karachi has militants.
“We welcomed the military operation against criminals,” he said, “but only we (the MQM) are being targeted.”
He said that no other political party’s office, except the MQM’s, was raided.
“If the law enforcement agencies have any evidence against any MQM leader, then arrest them.”
The MQM chief was arrested from his house in northwest London on June 3 for alleged money laundering and spent the night at a local hospital in police custody. He was later released on bail.
