KARACHI: London’s Metropolitan Police has extended the bail for Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain in relation to his money laundering case till December 2014, DawnNews reported.

The MQM leader had initially been expected to appear for a police interview by 31 July after his bail had expired.

Altaf Hussain appealed to his supporters that they should remain calm while the court proceedings are underway.

Living in self-exile for over two decades, the MQM leader was arrested on June 3 after months of investigation by the British authorities into a money laundering case.

However, by June 7 he was released on bail.
