Former UK political party spokesperson revealed as head of kidnapping gang in Pak

London, Feb. 5 : A former spokesperson of a political party in Britain has admitted he was a former head of a kidnapping gang in Pakistan.

Former United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP) Commonwealth spokesperson Mujeebur Rehman Bhutto's gang were behind a high-profile kidnapping in Karachi in 2004.

Bhutto took 56,000 pounds in ransom money in Manchester from the kidnapping.

According to the BBC, in 2005, Bhutto admitted being the gang's 'boss' and was jailed for seven years by a UK court.

Bhutto joined UKIP in 2011 and regularly appeared as UKIP's Commonwealth spokesman, and as a party representative in local and national media.

He said he had left the party in December 2013.

Bhutto said he had admitted being boss of the gang in 2005 in order to avoid risk being deported to Pakistan and hanged.

In June 2004, a gang led by Bhutto kidnapped Ahmed Naeem, the son of a wealthy businessman, at gunpoint from a car on a Karachi residential street.

Five days later Bhutto flew to England.

The 56,000 pounds ransom was found hidden in Bhutto's bed in a house in Leeds, and he was forced to repay it when he appeared in court.

He was sentenced under the name Majeebur Bhutto.
