Rangers’ raid halts MQM press conference at Nine Zero


KARACHI: Rangers contingent made a surprise visit to the MQM headquarters this evening – apparently to conduct a raid – forcing party leaders to halt their press conference.

The paramilitary personnel besieged the Khursheed Begum Memorial Hall where the press conference of Rabita Committee members including Farooq Sattar was underway.

According to initial reports, the cameras were forced off as Rangers entered the hall where top MQM leaders were addressing the media.

Sources said the Rangers raided the Nine Zero on reports of presence of a suspect. They said no arrests were made during the Rangers visit. They left the MQM headquarters after searching the building and parading the streets.
