KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) leader Nabeel Gabol has been named in the murder case of proscribed People’s Amn Committee leader Zafar Baloch.
Father of Zafar Baloch reportedly named Gabol – also a member of the National Assembly – in the First Information Report (FIR), registered here on Friday night.
He alleged that the killing was carried out on the MQM leader’s instructions.
Zafar Baloch was shot dead on Wednesday by unknown motorcycle riders in Karachi’s troubled Lyari neighbourhood.
Meanwhile, condemning the claim, MQM’s Rabita Committee has demanded the federal government to take immediate notice of the episode.In a statement issued here, the party demanded for retraction of the murder case against their lawmaker. “Falsely involving Nabeel Gabol in the murder case of Zafar Baloch is continuation of political victimization,” said the statement.
Gabol is currently in Islamabad to attend the ongoing session of lower house of the parliament.
