LONDON: In a major political development, the London Metro-politan Police on Tuesday denied that a purported confession statement by Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) leader Tariq Mir was an official document which had been leaked, BBC Urdu reported.
According to Metropolitan Police spokesperson Allen Crockford, after examining the purported testimony carefully, he could confirm that they were not official documents of record.
In a brief e-mailed reply, he said the London police had carefully analysed excerpts from this alleged confession, printed in various newspapers of Pakistan and repeatedly broadcast by TV channels.
In the purported testimony of MQM leader Mir, which were ‘leaded’ online, it had been alleged that the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) had been receiving funds from the Indian government since 1994 with only four top leaders kept in the loop.
