The Scotland Yard in the United Kingdom (UK) has agreed to hand over the full evidence file of the Imran Farooq murder case to Pakistan, said sources.
An acceptance letter in this regard has been sent to the Pakistani authorities by the UK government and the lawyer who represents Pakistan in the case has reached the country with the letter.
Additional Attorney General Sajjad Bhatti will present the letter before the Islamabad High Court soon. The development was confirmed by Toby Cadman, the counsel for the Pakistan government in London.
The decision was taken in response to a request by Pakistan to the UK for Mutual Legal Assistance and transfer of evidence relevant to the murder inquiry into the death of Imran Farooq.
The UK handing over the evidence of a murder inquiry conducted in Britain to Pakistan is a noteworthy step forward in the fight against serious and organised crime.
