Rangers file FIR against Altaf Hussain

ALTAFKARACHI: A case was lodged against Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) head Altaf Hussain on Tuesday for “making threatening remarks against the paramilitary rangers force.”

The case was registered on the complaint of Rangers official Col. Tahir at Civil Lines Police Station in Karachi.

According to the complaint, Hussain, in a TV interview, used harsh language against Rangers personnel who conducted a raid at Nine Zero last week.

In an interview with a news channel, Hussain, while referring to the Rangers personnel said “Jo afser hain woh thay ho jainge” (those who are now officers will become a thing of past).

The case was registered under clause 7 of Anti-Terrism Court and 506 (B) of Pakistan Penal Code (PPC).

It is noted here that Amir Khan, a central figure of MQM’s Rabita Committee, and dozens of others suspects were rounded up by police in a pre-dawn raid on the party’s headquarters in Azizabad on March 11.

Rangers spokesman Col Tahir claimed that those arrested were involved in criminal activities. He said that Faisal Mota, a death row convict, was also found from the office. Col. Tahir said that weapons supposedly stolen from NATO containers, were also recovered from the office, a charge MQM strongly denies. Agencies
