ISLAMABAD: Khalid Shamim, one of three suspects under custody in Dr. Imran Farooq murder case, says he is willing to become an approver in the high profile case, Samaa reported.

“I’m ready to become approver if nation supports me… I need help, people’s help…” said the murder suspect while replying a query of a reporter following his court appearance in Islamabad.

“Altaf Hussain is agent of RAW and Muhammad Anwar is agent of British agencies,” he alleged.

The Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM), which is led by its London-based supremo Altaf Hussain, has denied any connection with assassination of senior party leader and founding member, Dr. Imran Farooq, who was killed in London in 2010.

The MQM issued denial last month, a day after Khalid Shamim and Mohsin Ali, another suspect in the case, pleaded guilty before a magistrate, admitting their role in the murder, while the third accused, Muazzam Ali, refused to record his statement.

All the suspects are in custody of Federal Investigation Agency (FIA).

Shamim had said in his confessional statement said the murder was committed on the directives of a ‘key figure’ from London who contacted him via telephone. He said Muazzam Ali acted as a facilitator.

Khalid said Muhammad Anwar, an MQM leader in exile, was in constant touch with him. The money to execute the killing was also provided from London, he had said. – Samaa
