LONDON (Agencies) British police on Thursday arrested a 34-year-old Pakistani national on suspicion of murdering Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) leader Imran Farooq. Scotland Yard said the man was arrested at a residential address in Camden, north London. He has been taken to a north London police station where he will be interviewed by detectives, the police headquarters said in a statement. Scotland Yards officials said, The accused is Pakistani national and he had also been arrested in 2009 under theft charges. The officials further said that police were conducting search for another accused and investigations were underway both at national and international levels. After completing legal procedures, the accused would be presented before a court on Friday (today), the sources said. Farooq, 50, was a founding member of the MQM. He was on his way back from work on September 16 when he was ambushed in London. He was found with head injuries and stab wounds outside his London home and pronounced dead at the scene. Detectives recovered a kitchen knife and a brick used in the attack. More than 200,000 mourners packed the streets of Karachi for his burial on November 6. Detectives from Scotland Yards counter-terrorism command have taken charge of the murder inquiry due to fears that the killing may be politically motivated. The suspect was also arrested for involvement in an October 2009 robbery. Detectives believe there are other people who may hold vital information about the attack and continue to urge them to come forward, Scotland Yard said. They still want to trace two men and speak to them in connection with the incident. Both men were of Asian appearance, in their 20s or 30s with short, dark hair. One was of stocky build, the other slim, they said. Farooq claimed asylum in Britain in 1999. He was wanted in Pakistan over scores of charges including torture and murder related to MQMs activities but always claimed the accusations were politically motivated.
