Laura Roberts and Heidi Blake
"Dr Farooq, 50, was repeatedly stabbed in the head and neck during the assault in Edgware, north London.
"He was a leading member of the Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) party, which is one of the largest in Pakistan.
"There were suggestions from Pakistan that he may have known his killer. When police arrived at the scene, they found Dr Farooq's body outside his house.
"A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said officers attended an address in Green Lane, Edgware, shortly before 5.30pm after reports of a serious assault. On arrival, officers found a single Asian man aged 50 with multiple stab wounds and head injuries, the spokesman said."
