“The Pakistan People’s Party government knew that today we will raise the issue of our missing and killed activists in the assembly; therefore, the speaker postponed the session in hurry,” he said.
He said that two more tortured bodies of their activists, Qasim Ali Shah and Mohammad Ali Khan, were thrown by plainclothes in Qayyumabad.
“They were picked up by security personnel four months ago from Punjab and Karachi airport,” he said adding that both of them were activists of MQM Unit 132, Qasba, Aligarh Colony.
