Abidi was killed outside his Karachi residence on Dec 25

A senior official of the Karachi police has claimed that MQM’s South Africa network could be responsible for the murder of former MNA Ali Raza Abidi.

“The involvement of MQM’s South Africa network in Ali Raza Abidi’s murder cannot be ruled out,” South SSP Pir Muhammad Shah said Wednesday.

Ali Raza Abidi, the former MQM MNA, was killed outside his residence in Defence’s Khayaban-e-Ghazi area on December 25.

Two workers of Pak Sarzameen Party were also killed in a gun attack in Karachi’s Nazimabad area on December 23. According to the FIR, the workers, identified as Fahad and Nasir, were receiving threats from MQM’s South Africa and India networks. Eleven people, including MQM’s founder Altaf Hussain, were nominated in the FIR.

The investigators believed that hate speeches being delivered from London are a threat to peace in Karachi.
