MONITORING DESK: Mohsin Ali, one of the prime accused in the Dr Imran Farooq murder case on Thursday confessed to his direct involvement in the killing of Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) leader, according to a private TV channel.
Ali admitted his crime during his interrogation by a Scotland Yard team, currently visiting Pakistan to investigate the suspects who are in custody of Pakistani authorities.
Mohsin Ali was reportedly being interrogated by the British detectives for the last two days. Sources purportedly told the news channel that the Scotland Yard team is now likely to return to the United Kingdom soon. Earlier in July, Mohsin Ali had admitted before a Pakistani JIT that he was present on the spot and attacked the MQM leader with a knife ‘on the occasion of Altaf Hussain’s birth anniversary’.
Ali had also claimed that he was an activist of All Pakistan Muttahida Students Organisation (APMSO) – the student wing of MQM formed on June 11, 1978. He told the JIT that Moazzam Ali, another key suspect in the case, was the one who arranged his and Kashif’s travel to the UK. Sources quoted Mohsin as admitting that he used to work in Moazzam Ali’s company, Com-net.
Moazzam Ali, according to sources, had also named five leaders of MQM for their alleged involvement in the murder case of Dr Imran Farooq. One of the names is that of MQM chief Altaf Hussain.
