‘Spy’ cop linked with RAW, MQM arrested in Karachi
The Special Investigation Unit (SIU) on Monday claimed to have arrested a police official allegedly working for the Indian intelligence agency, Research and Analysis Wing (RAW).
The suspect, ASI Shahzad Parvez, who is deputed at the Sharae Faisal police station, was arrested near New Preedy Street in a joint operation with an intelligence agency, based on a tip-off. Two hand grenades were confiscated from his possession.
SIU Inspector Shabbir claimed that Parvez was working for the Muttahida Qaumi Movement’s Mehmood Siddiqi team, adding that initial investigations had revealed he was involved in terrorist activities.
Parvez had reportedly gone missing on Thursday, according to his wife, who had earlier on Monday complained that the police were neither responding to her queries about her husband nor were they registering a case about his disappearance.
Officials claimed that he had been picked up by law enforcement officials when he was leaving home for a police station.
