Published: May 13, 2015


KARACHI: Almost two weeks after alleging that the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) maintains connections with the Indian intelligence agency RAW and getting suspended as a result, Rao Anwar has been reinstated as SSP Malir, Express News reported.

Hours after the Anwar’s allegations against MQM, Sindh Chief Minister Qaim Ali Shah had taken notice of the briefing, after which IG Sindh suspended Anwar and ordered him to report to the Central Police Office.

SSP Rao had presented two alleged terrorists who he claimed belonged to the MQM. The official further claimed that the MQM was actively working against Pakistan.

“Key MQM leaders have connections with RAW,” he said, adding that the arrested MQM workers had received training from India’s spy agency RAW.

The SSP said he had evidence to support his claims, including their passports and their statements. “MQM workers from every sector go to India for training via Bangkok,” he said.

The MQM had held a press conference later that day, rejecting SSP Rao Anawar’s allegations, claiming that contrary to Anwar’s allegations, MQM activists Tahir and Junaid had been picked up weeks ago.

    What a mockery of the civil service protocols… People are going to welcome the move as everyone speaking against MQM is a national hero and all his actions above law are ignorable… an unwelcome move without any logical conclusion of his press conferenceRecommend

    Perhaps those against MQM are finding it difficult to digest overwhelming success of the party from constituency NA-246 in free, fair and transparent elections conducted under Rangers supervision. And Saulat Mirza, despite substantial ‘investment’ in him, did not prove very helpful either, and that was very frustrating indeed. So, some one else had to be found to beat MQM with, and what better choice could there be.

    And as for rules, regulations and established procedures, they are considered helpful only in restraining and beating the masses with, but do not hinder in any way the freedom of action of the higher-ups who feel absolutely free to act as they please.

    Mismanagement joke of century. Who is behind Rao Anwar. Why given Malir to him. He talked about Indian spies and training in India. If he lands in police hands , particularly Punjab Police he will talk like BulBul that he Israeli and Indian agent and gets funds in dollars. Who is behind this man ZA QA. Let the media investigate and tell the truth to public – if they do not fear from Rao and his ring master Recommend
