Farooq Sattar, Amir Khan indicted in media house attack case

Karachi: An anti-terrorism court (ATC) on Saturday indicted Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan leaders Farooq Sattar and Amir Khan in a case pertaining to an attack on a media house.

The two MQM-P leaders appeared in court along with other party workers and are also charged with inciting hate and rebelling against the state apparatus.

On August 22, 2016, MQM-P chief Sattar delivered a provocative speech outside Karachi Press Club and made seditious remarks against the state and threatened a private TV channel.

The party leaders pleaded not guilty before the court as the court convicted Sattar and 60 others in the case.

In March 2017, the ATC ordered the police to produce Sattar and other party leaders “at all costs”.
