Not one to shy away from controversy, Dr Mirza told the media at the Karachi Airport that he was going away for a week and the people of Pakistan were going to hear good news regarding a breakthrough in the Imran Farooq murder case. “I have two briefcases filled with proof which will help the Scotland Yard police,” he said.
Chanting slogans to support the former Sindh home minister, workers of the Pakistan Peoples Party were also present at the airport.
Despite warnings from President Asif Ali Zardari telling his party workers to avoid associating with Mirza, Sindh Information Minister Sharjeel Inam Memon, along with PPP MPAs Imdad Pitafi and Fayyaz Bhutt, accompanied him to the airport. There were reports that Memon was also flying out with Mirza via UAE on Emirates Airline flight EK603.
However, despite repeated attempts, no contact could be established with the minister, and no government or party official confirmed the news.
Some senior leaders of the PPP, including Sindh Revenue Minister Jam Mehtab Dahar, also held meetings with Mirza on Tuesday morning, sources within the party told The Express Tribune, adding that Memon and other PPP MPAs who have been supporting Mirza on the local government system were also present during those meetings.
