Islamabad, March 17: Pakistani security forces on Tuesday registered a case against Mutahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) leader Altaf Hussain over his alleged threats, officials said. Paramilitary forces said that Hussain had used threatening language against the security forces in a telephonic interview with a private TV channel last week, Xinhua reported. Hussain, who lives in exile in London, made the remarks days after the paramilitary troops raided the MQM’s headquarters in Karachi, arrested some suspects and recovered arms. The paramilitary force, Pakistan Rangers, reported to the police that Altaf Hussain “threatened members of the paramilitary force” who were involved in the operation. Two convicted men were also captured during the raid, the Rangers said earlier. The case was registered by the Rangers spokesman, Col. Tahor. IANS
