LONDON: Personnel of the Scotland Yard raided a business office in London in connection with MQM leader Imran Farooq’s murder and took some important documents into their custody, a private news channel said on Thursday.

The channel quoted a spokesman for the London police as saying the action had been taken by the Scotland Yard’s counter-terrorism command unit in Edgware area.

The search of the office continued for about 10 hours during which several people were also interrogated but no one was taken into custody.

The spokesman said the unit’s raid was not related to terrorism and the action was taken under the Police and Criminal Evidence Act, according to the channel.

The spokesman said the police were determined to arrest the murderers of Dr Imran Farooq and that a team had been investigating the matter.

The Scotland Yard sources claimed that they had found some new and important clues into the case, said the news channel.—Dawn Monitor
