“Heirs of our martyred workers are not being given justice,” MQM’s coordination committee said in a statement issued here Tuesday.
MQM worker Syed Faraz Alam was killed in police custody after he refused to give bribe, the statement claimed, adding that hundreds of the party workers were released after paying bribes worth hundreds of thousands of rupees.
However, Sindh Additional IG Ghulam Qadir Thebo, while exclusively talking to Samaa, denied the accusations level by MQM, saying that Faraz Alam had died of heart attack in police custody.
Yesterday, Thebo, in an interview with BBC, claimed that MQM has divided into groups which might have led to disappearance of the party workers.
MQM condemned in strongest terms Sindh Additional IG Ghulam Qadir Thebo statement, terming it a failed attempt to conceal the facts.
Later, clarifying his statement, the additional IG said that he had not named any political party in the interview
