KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement on Friday approached the Sindh High Court (SHC) against alleged extrajudicial killing of its another activist Muhammad Adil.
MQM leader Nasren Jalil, and father of deceased activist, jointly filed petition in SHC, naming interior ministry, home ministry, provincial chiefs of police and rangers, additional inspector general Shahid Hayat, SP New Karachi, and head of Khawaja Ajmer Nagri police station as respondents.
