Addressing a news conference in Islamabad on Tuesday evening, Nisar said that in the light of report of the Joint Investigation Team including British Scotland Yard, the Pakistan government will lodge an FIR in Dr. Imran Farooq murder case.
He said Imran Farooq was a Pakistani national and that is why Pakistan extended full cooperation to Britain in investigation of the case and shared all information.
He further announced that international non-governmental organisation (INGOs) have been given extension of one month for registration under the new policy framed by the government.
Nisar said “those not registering their INGOs will have to leave the country from the first of the month”.
The federal interior minister said the extension is also aimed at conveying a clear message that Pakistan wants to work with those International NGOs that are ready to operate within the framework of Pakistani laws.
He said 129 INGOs applied for registration before the expiry of previous deadline, November 30. “Process has been initiated for verification of these applications.”
“The fact that 129 INGOs applied under the existing policy, contradicted criticism of the policies by some countries,” he added.
Dr Farooq, a senior leader of Muttahida Qaumi Movement, was murdered outside his home in London in 2010.
In July this year, two men said to be linked to the murder of MQM convener Dr. Imran Farooq were held near the Pak-Afghan border in Chaman.
The accused— identified as Mohsin Ali and Khalid Shamim by Frontier Corps (FC) spokesman Khalid Wasey — were wanted in the murder case of Dr. Imran Farooq.
