KARACHI: An undertrial person, arrested for running a gang of target killers and receiving training by India’s Research and Analysis Wing (RAW), died at Central Prison in Karachi today (Saturday).
According to details, the MQM-London activist Naeem died in the prison after his health deteriorated around 5:00 am, forcing the prison officials to rush him to Civil Hospital Karachi.
“He died around 8:00 am,” the police officials said, adding that Naeem Ahmed was arrested by CTD over terrorism charges and his RAW-related links.
“Anis Advocate and Farooq Sattar were also summoned by the CTD after he claimed their role in facilitating the entire process of establishing links with the RAW,” the police added.
Meanwhile, the police said that the cause of death of the inmate would emerge after a post-mortem report. “After legal formalities, his body will be handed over to his family members in Hyderabad,” they said.
