The United Kingdome government has for the first time handed over evidence to Pakistan in the Dr Imran Farooq murder case.
Dr Imran Farooq was a senior leader of the MQM. He was killed outside his home in London on September 16, 2010.
There are 26 pieces of evidence in the packet the United Kingdome Central Authority has given to Pakistan. This includes Dr Umer Farooq’s death certificate, his post-mortem examination report, forensic report, fingerprint reports and the statements of the people who prepared the reports.
The post-mortem report confirmed that the MQM leader Imran Farooq was stabbed to death. The packet also includes important witness statements.
The FIA was given time to present additional evidence in the case by the Islamabad High Court. The FIA had petitioned the court to overturn the trial court’s decision not to allow it time to present the evidence. However, the high court said that the trial must be completed two months after the evidence is received.
