The MQM-Pakistan and the PSP share a common enemy it seems. The Karachi police have discovered that the same weapon was used in attacks on both party’s offices.

A man was killed and another injured after unidentified men attacked the MQM-Pakistan’s union council office in New Karachi on February 11. Two people were killed and two others injured in an attack on a PSP office in Nazimabad on December 24.

Forensic tests have determined that the same 9mm pistol was used in both attacks. However, the pistol was not the only weapon used in either attack. The police have expanded their investigation after receiving the report.
