KARACHI: The Muttahida Qaumi Movement has condemned what it described as baseless and malicious reports against the party in connection with its slain leader Dr Imran Farooq.
Dr Farooq was stabbed to death in London in September last year.
The MQM’s coordination committee said in a statement on Friday that the reports broadcast by some TV channels, published by newspapers and circulated by news agencies about the killing of Dr Farooq were “devoid of truth, baseless and concocted”.
“The purpose of these fabricated and malicious allegations is nothing but to tarnish the image of the MQM and damage its reputation,” it said, adding the MQM was consulting its legal advisers for a legal action. The Muttahida said the Scotland Yard was investigating the case and the media should desist from spreading speculations.
