KARACHI/LARKANA - Sindh National Front (SNF) leader Mumtaz Bhutto was shifted to Karachi from Larkana on Saturday for interrogation, where an FIR has been registered against him at Frere police station. He was later shifted to a hospital. According to police sources, an FIR No 01/2009 has been registered against the SNF head and his other party leaders and workers for their alleged involvement in attacking the office of a Sindhi newspaper, attempt to murder, rampage and other such charges. The sources said that on the directives of the SNF head, his party workers had attacked the office of a local Sindhi newspaper for not publishing his column on the eve of the first death anniversary of former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto on December 27th. Earlier, the SNF chief was put under house arrest in Larkana. The security was tight when the SNF leader was shifted to Frere police station, where a big contingent of law-enforcers had been deployed. The police and Rangers sealed the entire exit and entrance points of the locality. Later, Mumtaz was shifted to hospital from police station on the directives of Sindh High Court. Bhutto's son Ali Hyder Bhutto had filed two petitions in Sindh High Court, one against the cases registered against Mumtaz Bhutto and another was for shifting him to hospital, in which the plaintiff submitted that his father is a heart patient. Earlier in Larkana, Mumtaz Bhutto was arrested from his hometown, Mirpur Bhutto, near Garhi Khuda Bux Bhutto, and was shifted to Karachi for interrogation for allegedly ordering his party workers to attack the office of a Sindhi newspaper. Sources said Mumtaz Ali Bhutto was initially put under house arrest and later shifted to Sukkur Airport on Saturday afternoon. Upon his arrest, the SNF chief said he did not expect any justice from the PPP government. He vowed to face every tyranny of current dictators instead of surrendering to them. Meanwhile, situation became tense in many cities of the province after the arrest of the SNF leader and hundreds of his workers came on the roads to protest against the government. Angry demonstrators in Larkana, Sukkur, Shikarpur, Ratodero, Naudero, Arzi Bhutto, Kamber-Shahdadkot and other cities chanted slogans against the PPP government and burnt tyres on the roads. The police baton-charged SNF workers and lobbed teargas shells to disperse them who were trying to get their leader back from Sukkur Airport. Besides, police also arrested several NSF workers in Sukkur, Larkana and other parts of Sindh. Online adds: Mumtaz Bhutto said he was arrested for disclosing the real culprits behind Benazir's murder. He expressed these views in his special talk with Online after his arrest from his native village Mirpur Bhutto. He said that he had also held Asif Ali Zardari responsible soon after the assassination of Mir Murtaza Bhutto in the past. "The very murderers of Mir Murtaza are the assassins of Benazir, " he added. He further said that he was arrested as apart of vendetta by Asif Zardari and Sindh Home Minister, while taking advantage of charges of attacking the office of a local Karachi newspaper. The whole plan of this drama was prepared in the Federal Capital. He said that he did not fear jail, since he had already been there in eras of General Ayub Khan, Yayha Khan and General Ziaul Haq for speaking truth and struggling for the restoration of democracy. He further said that police have arrested him without showing him arrest warrant which clearly shows that it was a vendetta against him. He vowed that he would continue his struggle until the arrest of real culprits behind Benazir Bhutto murder.
