MQM supporters and workers staged a sit-in at Numaish Chowrangi to show inseparable bonding to their party chief Altaf Hussain over his arrest by London police.
Earlier, member of Coordination Committee Haider Abbas Rizvi appealed to MQM supporters and workers to stage a sit-in to show solidarity with Altaf Hussain at Numaish Chowrangi on M.A Jinnah Road.
