ISLAMABAD:  Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC) in Islamabad will indict all the suspects in Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) leader Imran Farooq murder case on May 25.

According to details, a formal case trial has been started in Adiala Jail as the investigation officer submitted challan in the court while the criminals have also got copy of relevant information.

All three accused Khalid Shamim, Mohsin Ali and Moazzam Ali pleaded to transfer the case to session court for further proceeding.

Earlier, FIA presented an interim challan for the seventh time along with death certificate and directly declared suspect Mohsin Ali as murderer while Moazzam Ali and Khalid Shamim were termed as facilitators.

Investigation officer Shahzad Zafar said that Mohsin and Kashif Kamran stabbed Imran Farooq to death.

On December 31st of the previous year, Shamim and Mohsin Ali had confessed to the crime in front of the judicial magistrate in Pakistan.

Shamim had admitted that a key MQM personality wanted to get Farooq out of his way. He said that the directives to assassinate Farooq came from London.

Farooq, 50, a founding member of MQM was killed in a knife attack in Edgware, northwest London in September 2010.

He claimed asylum in Britain in 1999 and was wanted in Pakistan over different charges including torture and murder but always claimed the accusations were politically motivated.

He had twice been elected an MP in Pakistan, but went into hiding in 1992 when the government ordered a military crackdown against party activists in Karachi.
