The gruesome extra-judicial killings of three Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) party workers in Pakistan have left people in sheer horror as their tortured bodies were recovered from different parts of Sindh province.

When his sister filed a petition in the Sindh High Court for the arrest and enforced disappearance of Basrat, she was threatened by the Rangers. The Rangers warned her not to mention their name in the FIR otherwise else she must be ready to face serious consequences. 

However, she refused to concede to them following which her brother Imran Basrat was also arrested by the Rangers. Basarat’s family keeps visiting the court for many years and tried to find out the whereabouts of Irfan Basarat but failed to get justice.

 On Wednesday tortured body of Irfan Basarat was thrown in the Shahpur chakar area of Shahdad pur city of Sanghar district of Sindh. Marks of brutal torture were evident on his whole body. Irfan Basarat Shaheed belonged to the MQM PIB Colony sector. His mother has also a worker of MQM.
