MQM appeals for recovery of missing activist

KARACHI: The Co-ordination Committee of Muttahida Qaumi Movement has appealed the authorities to take immediate action for saving the life of its Karachi Tanzeemi Committee member, Ayaz Hassan, who was abducted the other day. In a statement, the committee said Hassan was going from Karachi to meet his son who studies in a cadet college in Sanghar where he was intercepted by some plain-clothed personnel of an unknown government agency at a few distance off Sohrab Goth. He was identified and taken to an unknown location. The driver was later released in a deserted area. The Co-ordination Committee said eight MQM workers were already missing after being abducted by law-enforcing agencies. Some workers have been missing for many months now but no government agency has bothered to confirm their arrest. The committee said there were serious concerns about life of Hassan keeping in view the extrajudicial killing of Ajmal Beg who was the unit in-charge of Burns Road Sector. The committee appealed the concerned authoritiesto take notice of he illegal and unlawful arrest of KTC member Hassan by plain-clothed personnel. It also called for urgent steps to protect life of its activist. staff report
