LONDON, Sept 16: Investigating the murder of Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) leader Imran Farooq, the London police have said that the slain politician’s wish to launch a new political party before his death remains a key line of probe.

In a statement published on the Metropolitan Police website on Mr Farooq’s third death anniversary on Monday, the police announced a reward of up to £20,000 for anyone providing information leading to the identification, arrest and prosecution of those responsible for the murder.

On Sept 16, 2010, 50-year-old Farooq was on his way home from work when he was attacked in Green Lane, outside his London home. The post-mortem examination revealed that he died from multiple stab wounds.

MQM chief Altaf Hussain was also interrogated by the London Police over the murder as well as suspicions of money laundering.

The police, in the latest statement, said their detectives from the Met Police Counter-Terrorism Command were committed to finding those responsible for the crime.

“To date they have spoken to 4,076 people, reviewed 6,350 documents and followed up 2,114 lines of inquiry in order to bring his killers to justice,” the statement said.

We have no trust on LONDON police. They and their government never been sincere with Pakistan from the beginning of its creation. What we got in division of India, undeveloped cities, while the put all the developed cities in the pocket of India like Bombay, Madras, Delhi, Calcutta and so on. India got the link from West India to East India by giving a side line beside East Pakistan while Pakistan didn't get any link between West Pakistan to East Pakistan. British did a great role for the division of Pakistan in 1971 getting together with India and United States of America. Allah says in Qur’an that non Muslims will never be friends of Muslims so beware of them. Pouring the water in the old history of killing of Umran Farooq our enemy wants to create difference among our political set-up. So we don't need their fact findings because they untrusted to us.
