London [UK], Sept.17 (ANI): On the occasion of sixth death anniversary of MQM slain leader Dr. Imran Farooq, detectives from the Met Police Counter Terrorism Command (SO15) remain committed to finding those responsible for the heinous incident.

Since the murder of Dr Farooq outside his home in Green Lane, Edgware, London, shortly before 5.30 p.m. on Thursday, 16 September 2010, officers have spoken to 4,636 people, reviewed 7,801 documents, viewed 4,433 exhibits and followed up 2,443 lines of enquiry, reports the London-based The Nation.

Dr. Farooq, 50, was on his way home from work when he was stabbed multiple times and hit on the head with a blunt instrument. A five-and-a-half inch bladed kitchen knife and a house brick used in the attack were recovered at the scene.

Officers have been in regular contact with the Pakistani authorities to gather evidence that could assist in bringing to justice the killers of Dr Imran Farooq. It is thought Dr Farooq's murder would have required careful planning and help from other people, some of whom may have provided assistance or information unwittingly.

They have named two men as wanted in connection with the murder:

Moshin Ali Syed, 31, (15.5.85) a Pakistani national who was in the UK between February 2010 and 16 September 2010; and

Muhammad Kashif Khan Kamran, 37, (6.7.79) a Pakistani national who was in the UK between early September 2010 and 16 September 2010.

Appealing for the information, police have said that anyone who can assist should call the police incident room on +44 (0)20 7230 2717 or contact the police by email at

Meanwhile, Pakistan Patriotic Front, UK and other anti-MQM organisations have arranged a demonstration against MQM leader Altaf Hussain and to condemn the murder of Dr. Imran Farooq.

The protest would be held outside the residence of Altaf Hussain at 12-Abbey Voew, London NW7 4PB. (ANI)
