KARACHI: A large number of paramilitary troops surrounded the house of senior parliamentarian and leader of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Farooq Sattar on Tuesday as part of an operation to arrest the party’s Sindh Assembly member Kamran Farooqui.
Quoting unnamed sources in the Sindh Rangers, Geo News said the raid was part of an operation carried out after fulfilling all legal requirements.
Rangers said a letter was written to the Sindh Assembly speaker, informing him that the MPA was wanted in an investigation.
As many as 30 paramilitary troops barricaded three streets around the house located in the Peer Ilahi Baksh (PIB) Colony of the metropolis.
However, Sattar, who was present inside his residence, told Geo News by telephone that there was no criminal present in his house.
“I am unable to contact the Director General Rangers, I have sent him a message,” he said. Farooq Sattar said the Rangers surrounded his house for over an hour before they left the area.
