KARACHI: Rangers arrested three workers of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) on Friday from different parts of Karachi.

Three workers identified as Zulfi, Kasu and Imran were arrested from Karachi’s Liaquatabad area.

These arrests come just a day after 16 workers of the party were arrested for allegedly extorting money from Karachi’s Rizvia society. “At least 1,000 receipts for donations and Rs31,500 were recovered from the men,” a Rangers press release had said.

The Rangers had clarified they will not allow any political or religious party to collect donations or fitra by force.

Further, Rangers appealed to citizens to report at Rangers Helpline 1101 any incident of extortion of forcible collection of donations ensuring that Rangers would provide protection to the public.
