Police baton-charged Muttahida Qaumi Movement Pakistan (MQM-P) workers and fired tear gas to disperse the protesting activists outside the Chief Minister (CM) House in Karachi.

The MQM-Pakistan  workers including women and children have been baton-charged by police officials in a sudden move to disperse the protestors outside the CM House .

MPA Sadaqat Hussain including female worker’s condition was deteriorated due to heavy firing at the protestors of tear gas shells and baton charge by police. It was learnt that 10 MQM-P workers were detained by the policemen from the protest venue.

Meanwhile, senior MQM-P leader Aminul Haq said that the party workers were protesting peacefully in front of the CM House.

“We are politicians and we are always ready for talks,” he said, adding that the Sindh government used baton-charge and tear gas without warning.

Meanwhile, Sindh Minister for Information Saeed Ghani said that MQM-P decided to change the location of the protest, as they had earlier announced the demonstration outside the press club but they started coming towards the CM House.

“We are not against protests, even Jamat-e-Islami has been protesting in front of the Sindh Assembly for almost a month now,” he said, adding that the MQM-P should have been careful as several foreign players are staying in hotels near the CM House because of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) which is scheduled to commence from tomorrow.

Ghani further added that because of PSL, security is already on high alert the protestors were warned not to move towards the CM House; however, they defied all requests and the police had to take action.
