Acting on the plea of Ubaid K2, the Sindh High Court (SHC) has served notices to the prosecutor general Sindh and the investigation officer in the case.

The convict was arrested from the MQM headquarters, Nine Zero, on March 11, 2015, when the paramilitary soldiers had raided the party’s headquarters and adjoining areas to arrest a number of MQM workers who were in hiding over there.

According to a police report, Ubaid K2 with the help of his associates and police officers had targeted two policemen, Mohammed Rehan and Nisar Ahmed, when they were heading to Crime Branch.
