Rangers raid on MQM Nine Zero: Rangers spokesman press conference

Pakistani Rangers raided MQM headquarters Nine Zero Wednesday morning and arrested dozens of people who were allegedly involved in terrorists acts. There has been a lot of talk over what kind of weapon was recovered at Nine Zero. MQM workers protested Rangers raid at their headquarters and demanded that all the people arrested be freed sooner than later. However, Rangers had its own version to tell to the media and government. Speaking to a press conference right after the raid, Colonel Tahir told the media that all those arrested were charged with serious crimes and the raid was conducted with the consent of all political parties. MQM cheif Altaf Hussain spoke to his followers from London and slammed the Rangers' move, saying if MQM was involved in terrorism, it would not shelter criminals at a well-known place like Nine Zero. Dismissing claims of weapons recovered at Nine Zero, Altaf Hussain said if MQM had stashed weapons there, there would have been confrontation and the whole media showed that the raid was conducted peacefully.
