MQM to challenge Baldia Town JIT report in court

MQM to challenge Baldia Town JIT report in court
KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) leader Dr Farooq Sattar said his party has decided to challenge in a court of law the findings of the Joint Investigation Team’s (JIT) report on Baldia Town factory fire.

Addressing a press conference here at Nine Zero, Dr Sattar flanked by members of MQM Rabitta Committee termed the JIT report on Model Town tragedy as fabricated and based on lies.

“An attempt has been made under a conspiracy to implicate MQM through a baseless report,” he said.

Haider Abbas Rizvi on the occasion said thousands of concocted JIT reports were also prepared in the past to indiscriminately target the party chief Altaf Hussain as well as workers.

He said the JIT report of Model Town tragedy was made on hearsays, as the ‘report is based purely on anecdotal evidence’.

He said the report was prepared about one-and-a-half-year ago in 2013 and made public now.

Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui termed the report part of a conspiracy against MQM.

Earlier, the party chief Altaf Hussain strongly condemned the JIT report on Balida Town factory blaze – the worst incident of fire in Pakistan’s history in which more than 250 people had lost their lives.
