KARACHI: Former Muttahida Qaumi Movement convener and head of US-based advocacy group Voice of Karachi Nadeem Nusrat has actually made it through an “assassination attempt” in Houston, his party said.
A statement gotten below specified that Mr Nusrat held an occasion in Houston on Sunday mid-day as well as left with VOK leader Shahid Farhad in a car.
It claimed that while travelling on Highway 59 South, Mr Farhad identified a black SUV suspiciously trying to get closer to his vehicle and then he saw “a hand coming out of the rear seat window of the suspicious vehicle with a pistol”.
He naturally drew the brake resulting in misfire from the opponents. Multiple shots were fired. Mr Nusrat also saw empty bullet shells flying airborne and striking the front portion of his vehicle, the statement stated, including that the opponents got away on the highway.
“Mr Nusrat as well as Mr Farhad have lodged the official report at the local police station and educated relevant authorities, that have started an investigation right into the event,” it said. Mr Nusrat was after that the London-based convener of the linked MQM when event owner Altaf Hussain made an incendiary speech on Aug 22, 2016. Later on, the event in Pakistan sacked him changing him with Dr Farooq Sattar as the convener of the sychronisation committee of the MQM-Pakistan.
He then led the London faction of the MQM as its convener and later on split methods with Mr Hussain and moved back to the United States, where he initially introduced a ‘Free Karachi’ campaign and after that transformed it right into the Voice of Karachi advocacy group.
