KARACHI: The Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) on Tuesday accused the Sindh Rangers of “abducting” a senior party member from Gulburg area of the metropolis without “any provision of warrant”.
In a statement, MQM claimed that Izhar Uddin Ahmed Khan, 55, was reportedly arrested when he went visit Sindh lawmaker Abdul Haseeb.
“Izhar was abducted by Rangers’ personnel who then moved him in an unmarked vehicle,” said MQM leader Wasay Jalil.
The party statement said “we fear for the safety of Izhar Ahmed who was abducted Rangers’ personnel this afternoon. We are concerned because that no warrant was provided and his current whereabouts remain unknown.”
The MQM called upon the lawful authorities to ensure the safety of Izhar Khan.
The party lawmakers claimed that their calls to Rangers’ headquarters in Karachi to inquire about the whereabouts of Izhar Khan remained unanswered.
Izhar Khan is a member of Central Coordination Committee and is based in the party’s London head office.
He was visiting Karachi to see his extended family members and has been nominated for the post of District Mayor, Karachi West.
“Izhar Khan holds British nationality as well and the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office and the British High Commission in Islamabad have been informed about his disappearance,” the party said.
