ISLAMABAD - A five-member team of Scotland Yard yesterday visited headquarters of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) and met with the officials concerned to separately disuses Dr Imran Farooq murder case and money laundering case against MQM Chief Altaf Hussain.

The London Metropolitan Police separately met with the Director General FIA and the director, Counter Terrorism Wing (CTW) of the agency to discuss these two important cases, an official of the FIA said.

According to FIA sources, the team would also meet the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) of FIA probing Dr Imran Farooq murder case and share some significant information in this connection.

Dr Imran Farooq, a founding member of Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) was stabbed to death outside his flat in London under mysterious circumstance in September 2010. The Scotland Yard is investigating the case while FIA has also registered a case with it and three accused in the case are under trial in Pakistan.

It is likely that the officials from both sides will exchange important evidence and other related documents with each other in the case. The British team will also interrogate the arrested suspects including Moazzam Ali, Mohsin Ali and Khalid Shamim. Another Scotland Yard team had interrogated all three suspects last year.

Meanwhile, Sarfraz Merchant, an accused in a money laundering case against MQM chief Altaf Hussain under investigation in London, has also recorded his statement before the investigators of FIA.

 FIA is also investigating a case of money laundering against Altaf Hussain and Merchant is the key witness in this case. The Scotland Yard team and FIA both will exchange some important evidence with the FIA in this case.
