Former chief of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement’s (MQM) Karachi organizing committee, Hammad Siddiqui who is also the prime suspect in the 2012 Baldia factory fire- has reportedly been arrested by Interpol in Dubai this Friday.

Although Siddiqui’s arrest has not been confirmed, he is currently being interrogated in Dubai about the factory fire and other incidents of violence in Karachi and is expected to be brought back to Pakistan for further investigation on Monday.

  18. cbd gummies July 18, 2020

    I’m the proprietor of JustCBD Store company (justcbdstore.com) and am aiming to expand my wholesale side of business. It would be great if anybody at targetdomain is able to provide some guidance . I considered that the most suitable way to do this would be to connect to vape stores and cbd retail stores. I was hoping if someone could suggest a trusted site where I can get Vape Shop B2B Data List I am already checking out creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Not sure which one would be the best solution and would appreciate any guidance on this. Or would it be easier for me to scrape my own leads? Ideas?
