Former Senator of Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) arrested by law enforcement agency from his residence. Faisal Raza Abidi was a PPP representative as well as a former senator, who resigned from the Senate in 2014. As reported, Abidi has been arrested from his residence Rizvia Society and shifted to an undisclosed location. More suspects have also been arrested from Rizvia Society and neighbourhood by the law enforcement agency reportedly.
Sources further revealed that Abidi is arrested to be investigated regarding current incidents of target killing and he is being investigated regarding high profile cases as well. It is pertinent to mention that strict actions are being taken against those who are trying to create chaos in the metropolis. Law enforcement agencies also conducted a thorough search of his house before taking him into custody.
Agencies have still not disclosed that why they have detained the ex-senator. But Twitter is full of assumptions. People have mix review, something its condemnable and some are of the view that he was not a well-reputed man. We think that things will get clear when the official statement comes out.
Police officials said that they were investigating the series of targeted attacks from different angles. They suspect that the same group could have the multiple attacks that took place on Friday, adding that it could be a reaction to the recent attacks on rival sectarian groups in Karachi. Meanwhile, over half a dozen members of the Shia community were killed in the city during this Muharram, whose killers remain at large.
Faisal Raza Abidi arrests have opened new pandora box; it is still to be seen that if he is detained in that same context, then what will be the reaction of Shia community.
