Govt decides to re-open murder case after Saulat Mirza’s statement
ISLAMABAD: The government has decided to re-open murder case of former KESC Managing Director Shahid Hamid, sources said on Thursday, a day after Saulat Mirza hurled serious allegations at Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM), hours before his hanging on Thursday.
Saulat Mirza’s execution was postponed shortly after his statement from a prison cell appeared on electronic media in which the convict accused Altaf Hussain of issuing orders for the killing of Shahid Hamid.
Besides accusing the MQM chief, the convicted murderer leveled grave allegations against other senior members of the MQM.
Sources told Geo News that Interior Secretary Ashtar Ausaf called on Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s special advisor to discuss the Saulat Mirza case.
Sources in the Interior Ministry said the government would re-open the murder case on a formal request of the Sindh government.
The sources also said that Mirza’s hanging is expected to be postponed for further 30 days.
