KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) leader, Rashid Godil who has been under treatment at a local hospital after suffering multiple bullet wounds in an armed attack six days ago has regained consciousness.
Rashid Godil has recorded his initial statement to the police officials who had visited him today, according to media reports.
He told the police that neither could he see the assailants nor did he know how many of them attacked him.
Godil also asked the police officials about the progress of their ongoing investigation into the attack in which his driver lost his life.
The policemen congratulated the MQM leader on surviving the attack and recovery.
The cops asked him about the statement Godil had issued only days before the assault that there could be an attack on his life. Godil replied that he had passed that remark as a joke.
Earlier, hospital administration said decision to shift the lawmaker from the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) would be taken on Monday after monitoring his condition.
Four attackers on motorcycles had opened fire on the car of Rashid Godil last Tuesday, critically wounding him and killing his driver.
The MQM leader was shot five times in the jaw, chin and chest, doctors said.
