UK police makes fresh appeal over Farooq murder

IMRAN FAROOQ

The Metropolitan Police has issued a fresh appeal for information as they try to solve the murder of Dr Imran Farooq in Edgware in September 2010.
Days before the second death anniversary of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement’s leader, the police appealed again to the people to come forward with any information that may lead to the identification, arrest and prosecution of those involved in the murder and has offered a reward of £20,000 in this regard.
Detectives from the MPS’s Counter Terrorism Command probing the murder of believe that Farooq may have been building his independent political profile months before he was murdered in London.
The police claimed to have knowledge that Farooq had setup a Facebook account in July 2010 and had amassed a large number of contacts using the social networking website.
The Scotland Yard team also believes that Farooq may have been poised to renew his political career and said that they would want to speak to anyone who was in contact with him over his political ambitions.
Farooq was murdered on 16 September 2010 in London.
Police believe his murder was planned and several people may have been involved.
They are asking anyone who was in contact with him about his plans to get in touch with them so they can build up a picture of his political life.
The authorities had launched an investigation and had also arrested a suspect who was released later for lack of evidence.
Farooq had co-founded the All Pakistan Mohajir Students Organisation (APMSO), the parent organisation of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement, with Altaf Hussain. He was deputy convener of the party, technically next in line to the MQM chief.
But he was believed to have left the party in 2009 after developing differences over organisational matters.

    London Met police is wasting its bloody time and keeping the public in suspense by issuing same appeals. One thing I agree to Met police is that Imran Farooq wanted to form an independent party. Met Police should know that Imran Farooq was expelled from the MQM by no less a person than British Government's darling supremo Altaf Hussain. The history of MQM is replete with evidences that whosoever annoyed megalomaniac Altaf Hussain are now RIP's. Does Met Police not know that Altaf Hussain is carrying out clandestine activities on fascists line from his home in Edgware Road.

    I would suggest to the Met Police to investigate the very man who has no tolerance to opposition and that man is Altaf Hussain. I can claim with confidence that if Altaf Hussain is taken in for interrogation it will have salutary effect on the target killings in Karachi. The city will become peaceful in 24 hours. Just try that.

    Met police needs to widen investigation to include other leaders of MQM.

    CONSPIRACY TO KILL is not one man job.

    I don't agree with most of the comments above. I think who ever kill Dr Imran Farooq wants to destroy MQM as he was one of the founder member of MQM and the day he has been murdered was a day before MQM chief Altaf Hussain's Birthday which is 17th Spet. So in my opinion If MQM is behind it they would never select that day. Also it is to demotivate MQM workers and emotionally break Altaf hussain to chose that particular day. I think UK police should investigate and bring killer to the court of justice. May Allah rest Dr Farooq Soul. Ameen.
