MQM founder extradition: Important Decision likely

ISLAMABAD - Important decision is likely by the interior ministry over extradition case of MQM founder Altaf Hussain.

Interior Minister officials will meet on January 8 to discuss steps being taken to extradite chief of Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) based in London, said a notification issued on Saturday.

The meeting will be chaired by federal interior secretary, and will be attended by the Federal Investigative Agency (FIA) Director General, Sindh Inspector General Kaleem Imam and representatives from the Sindh home ministry.

Earlier, the interior ministry in October 2018 gave a go-ahead to the authorities for approaching Interpol for Altaf Hussain’s red warrant in the Imran Farooq murder case.

Farooq, 50, was stabbed to death outside his house in London on September 16, 2010.
