KARACHI: Pakistan Rangers Sindh surrounded Tuesday evening the streets leading towards Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) senior leader Dr Farooq Sattar’s home in Karachi’s PIB Colony.
A heavy contingent of the paramilitary forces was present in the neighbourhood closer to the MQM leader’s residence.
Party leaders Wasay Jalil and Nadeem Nusrat confirmed the development.
“[It is a] part of strategy to criminalise/terrorise MQM leadership to compel it to switch loyalty,” Rabita Committee convener Nadeem Nusrat tweeted.
Meanwhile, speaking to a private TV channel, Sattar said, “I will first speak to DG Rangers before facing the raiding party.”
“This is not the right way to approach me. Are we the country’s enemies?”
No refuge was given to any criminal, added the MQM leader.
