Imran Farooq’s wish to pursue politics independently led to his murder: London police – The Express Tribune
London Metropolitan Police have hinted that slain high-profile Muttahida Qaumi Movement leader, Dr Imran Farooq’s wish to actively participate in politics by pursuing his political career independently might have led to his murder, Express News reported Friday.
The Metropolitan Police, also known as Scotland Yard, said that he was killed because his murderers did not want him to do so.
Appealing for an investigation, the Metropolitan police also announced a £20,000 reward for providing any information linked to his assassination.
Dr Farooq made a profile on a social media site which could help foster his political career, two months prior to his murder.
Farooq was murdered in a knife attack in the Edgware district of London late on September 16, 2010.
Detectives had revealed that he was killed with two kitchen knives sold in discount stores and online and a house brick may also have been used in the attack.
CCTV footage of his final hours, released by police, had images of him at an underground train station as he travelled to work on the morning of his death.
