LONDON: The MQM has been accused of taking financial help from Indian spy agency RAW, alleged a report published in the BBC.
The report accused the MQM of training hundreds of militants in India, and using them to inflict terror on the streets of Karachi.
The report said that the training camps were operated in north and north east India for the last 10 years.
Before 2005-2006 the training was given to a small number of mid-ranking members of the MQM, BBC quoted senior party officials.
More recently, greater numbers of more junior party members have been trained, the report said.
MQM leaders have called these allegations ‘baseless’.
The MQM is in troubled water after the UK government is investigating it for money laundering following the murder of a party leader, Imran Farooq in London.
Closer home MQM party members are being tried for crimes such as murder. Saulat Mirza, who called himself a die-hard MQM activist has been recently hanged to death.
A raid by Rangers at the MQM headquarters nine-zero, earlier, resulted in the arrest of Faisal Mota, who was convicted in the murder of a journalist and was at large.
During the raid, weapons were also confiscated in large amounts from the headquarters.
