SLAMABAD: A two-member team of Scotland Yard arrived in Pakistan on Monday to interrogate the suspects believed to have been involved in the 2010 murder of Dr Imran Farooq, a senior leader of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM), a party of Urdu-speaking Muslims who had migrated to Pakistan after partition in 1947.

Dr Imran Farooq was killed outside his home in Green Lane, Edgware, London in a brutal manner on 16 September 2010. Farooq's post-mortem examination revealed that he died from multiple stab wounds and blunt trauma to the head. Less than two weeks ago, Pakistan had arrested two men near the Pak-Afghan border in Chaman region of Baluchistan accused in the murder of Imran Farooq.

The persons-- identified as Mohsin Ali and Khalid Shamim -- were wanted in the murder case of Dr Imran Farooq. Last year, the BBC had mentioned Khalid Shamim in its report as a person believed to have helped the return of alleged murderers of Imran Farooq to Pakistan. The other -- Mohsin Ali -- was mentioned in the same report as one of the two suspects who were believed to have travelled from Pakistan to London to assassinate Dr Farooq. The MQM, however, has disassociated itself from both the suspects.

While refuting news circulating in local media mills for the last several days about the presence of a seven-member team of Scotland Yard in Pakistan to quiz the suspects, the interior ministry said that earlier reports of a six to seven member team in Islamabad were baseless.

Farooq, the slain leader, had claimed asylum in Britain in 1999. He was wanted in Pakistan over scores of charges including torture and murder but always claimed the accusations were politically-motivated.

Local media quoted a senior official of Federal Investigation Agency as saying that the British investigators also want to record statements of some MQM leaders in Karachi but it is up to the government whether or not to allow the team to do so.

Another anonymous FIA official was quoted by media as saying: "It's a reciprocal approach. Our team may travel to the UK to collect evidence pertaining to BBC's damning report on Indian funding to the MQM."

The MQM is a party of Urdu-speaking Muslims who migrated to Pakistan after partition in 1947. Its chief,Altaf Hussain, lives in self-imposed exile in London, where he is being investigated by British authorities over money-laundering allegations.

Pakistani politicians have advised the MQM to take legal action against the BBC over its latest report about its involvement in receiving funds from Indian authorities to avoid further damage to the party and its leadership.
