Malik denies arrests in Imran Farooq murder case
ISLAMABAD: Interior Minister Rehman Malik has rejected a claim made by London police that two suspects had been arrested in Pakistan in connection with the murder of MQM leader Dr Imran Farooq.
“No arrest has been made in the murder case of Dr Imran Farooq,” the interior minister told reporters at the Benazir International Airport.
“No such thing has been mentioned in a letter sent by the UK authorities to the interior ministry,” Mr Malik claimed.
Media reports said a couple of days ago that London Police Commissioner Bernard Morgan had confirmed the arrest of two suspects in Pakistan.
He said the London police were cooperating with Pakistani authorities in the matter.
Dr Imran Farooq was murdered outside his London home last year.
