KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) leader Kanwar Naveed has alleged that Waseem Akhtar and Rauf Siddiqui have been arrested on the basis of findings of biased JIT.

Addressing a hurriedly-called press conference at Nine Zero on Tuesday, Kanwar Naveed said that the arrest of Waseem Akhtar and Rauf Siddiqui is a continuation of Karachi operation.

“JITs are being set up to weaken Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) and force its workers to change their loyalties,” he said.

Naveed said that cancellation of bails of Waseem Akhtar and Rauf Siddiqui by the judge appeared to be the result of some undue external pressure.

“Thousands of MQM workers have been receiving threats and being pressurized to quit the party. As many as 130 are still missing,” he said.
