KARACHI:- One of the main accused in the Baldia Factory Fire case Abdul Rahman alias Bhola arrested from Thailand by Interpol has been repatriated to Pakistan, sources said. Rahman was Muttahida Qaumi Movement’s (MQM) sector in-charge of Baldia Town. He went to Dubai from Pakistan, later shifting to Malaysia, he then finally moved to Thailand. As many as 40 commandos raided a room at the Royal Garden Home Hotel in Soi Nana in Bangkok and arrested him.

On November 28 during the hearing of the Baldia Factory Fire case the anti-terrorism court grilled authorities for not being able to arrest Hammad Siddiqui and Rehman alias Bhola, the other two suspects of the case. The court had ordered the interior ministry to arrest fugitives with the help of Interpol.

A JIT probing the matter stated that Hammad Siddiqui had ordered Rahman alias Bhola and others to set the factory on fire.

Rahman is one of the three main accused. Zubair alias Lala is in police custody, while Hammad Siddiqui is still at large.

Paksarzameen Party and Muttahida Qaumi Movement Pakistan in separate statements refuted allegations that Rahman was once associated to their parties.
