Sindh’s counterterrorism department summoned Farooq Sattar, leader of the disgruntled Muttahida Qaumi Movement, and Anees Advocate of the Pak Sarzameen party for their alleged involvement in terrorist incidents in Hyderabad.
The CTD investigated the arrested activists who were involved in these incidents, according to the CTD DIG Omar Shahid Hamid.
“A lot of these acts of terrorism took place two decades ago, but we will investigate all aspects of these cases,” he told SAMAA Digital.
“The suspects, who were previously affiliated with MQM-London, joined different parties. ”
On May 28, a security agency arrested three suspected terrorists in a raid near Landhi Station.
The suspects, affiliated with MQM-L, were turned over to the CTD. They have been identified as Naeem Ahmed, Imran Ahmed and Aleemuddin.
The suspects ran a terrorist network in the Sindh countryside. They were allegedly trained by the Indian secret agency R&AW.
The terrorist network was formed by members of the MQM-L based in South Africa, according to CTD officials. He has been implicated in police murders, bombings, robberies and arson.
“Dr Farooq Sattar was summoned in connection with the arrest of MQM-L activists last week,” DIG Hamid said.
A CTD team went to serve the notice at Sattar’s home and temporary residence at the Avari Hotel, he said.
Anis Advocate was also summoned for his role in these incidents, the officer added.
