The court ordered investigation officer to appear in the next hearing with witnesses. Rangers conducted a targeted raid at MQM headquarters Nine-Zero in Azizabad in March, 2015 where they arrested more than 120 MQM’s party workers.

Five of the arrested suspects, Sajid Ali, Syed Habib Rahim, Muhammad Asif, Noman and Faizan, were given extension in their physical remand as they were produced in court.

Others such as Ubaid alias K2, Abdullah and Abdul Qadir, were, however, remanded in some new cases as the police claimed they had seized weapons and explosives on information given by the suspects.
