Qazi was arrested in the murder case of Managing Director Karachi Electric Supply Corporation (now K-Electric) Shahid Hamid.

According to a charge sheet submitted in the ATC concerned, under-detention accused Minhaj Qazi alias Asad has claimed that Shahid Hamid was killed on the directives of MQM founder and another senior leader Nadeem Nusrat.
The then KESC managing director, his driver and a guard were killed on July 5, 1997, in the Defence Housing Authority.
