The auxiliary charge sheet regarding the case was filed in 2012 and as per it former chief of the MQM Karachi Tanzeemi Committee Hammad Siddiqui, his front man and the Baldia Town sector in-charge Abdul Rehman, alias Bhola, and three to four unknown men were alleged as truants in the case. Dozen other purported culprits were set free due to the lack of evidence.
