Karachi—Anti-terrorism court has indicted Muttahida Qaumi Movement’s Ubaid K2 in case regarding possession of explosives on Saturday.
An ATC in Central Jail Complex heard the case against MQM’s worker and indicted the culprit after hearing arguments from both the sides. However, the Ubaid pleaded not guilty.
The court issued notices to investigation officers and witnesses ordering to make their presence sure.
Another MQM worker, Abdul Qadir Hingoro was also indicted. The culprit was apprehended by law enforcers from Karachi’s Garden area for possessing explosives.
Ubaid was arrested by Rangers on March 11, 2015 from Muttahida Qaumi Movement’s headquarters Nine-Zero in a search and siege operation.
A case was registered against the culprit at Gulberg police station for possession of explosives. After arrest, Ubaid had revealed that Deputy Superintendent Jail Amanullah Niazi was murdered after he refused to facilitate disenchanted worker of the party Saulat Mirza. Mirza was later hanged in Machh Jail after he was convicted in a triple murder case. Several arrests were made and weapons seized during Nine Zero raid. The troops had presented the weapons before media after the raid and claimed that some of the ammunition and guns were stolen from NATO containers.
In the following week, the raiding party stated that MQM failed to put forth licences of 53 weapons. An official of the force stated that a total of 124 weapons were seized from the Khursheed Begum Memorial Hall while licences of 107 were provided out of which only 71 had been verified.
