MQM’s ‘day of mourning’ today

Published Jun 06, 2013 05:01am

KARACHI, June 5: The Muttahida Qaumi Movement announced on Wednesday that it would observe a ‘day of mourning’ on Thursday to protest the killing of its three ‘sympathisers’ in Malir earlier in the day.

Police said three young factory workers were kidnapped and shot dead while another man was critically wounded in Khokhrapar.

While the Sindh government constituted a team of senior police officers, led by the DIG East, to investigate the killing of the three factory workers, MQM activists and leaders carrying coffins staged a sit-in in front of the Chief Minister’s House and demanded action against the People’s Amn Committee, a banned organisation it blamed for the killings.
