Jersey City worker triggerman in Pakistan assassination Daily News Exclusive
A Jersey City grocery clerk had a secret life before he started stocking shelves: He was a Pakistani assassin wanted for a decade-old murder, law enforcement sources said.
Akhtar Hussain Muawia sneaked into the country under an assumed name less than a year after the murder of a top Shia leader, moved in with his sister and worked in his brother-in-law's Mashaallah Grocery, the sources said.
The NYPD unmasked Muawia several months ago when a 30-year-old civilian analyst discovered his true identity, sources said.
"If what you say is true, that was not a holy man," said an employee at the Sunni Rizvi Jamia mosque in Jersey City, where Muawia worshiped.
"They left and no one talked about them. No one said a word. I do not like thinking that was happening here," the worker said.
Muawia was arrested in May as the alleged gunman who killed Shia leader Mahmood Shah in Pakistan in 1997, sources said. He is in federal custody fighting deportation.
Fighting deportation? Not to worry, Pelosi has you covered.

FBI raids Arabic deli on Grove St. Jersey List May 2007
Numerous FBI agents raided a deli on Grove Street in Jersey City yesterday morning, apparently looking for a man who is a suspect in a crime outside the United States, a police source said.
Shop owners in nearby businesses said up to 10 agents wearing jackets with the letters "FBI" on them arrived at the Mashaallah Grocery near Wayne Street around 9 a.m. yesterday morning.
"I'm not surprised, this is not the first time," said the owner of an adjacent shop who would not give his name. "They were here two or three months ago. That's when they took the brother-in-law. He was deported."
Jersey City officials were notified by the FBI that they would be at the store looking for the suspect, and they apparently took him away. Some area shop owners said a man was taken from the grocery store in handcuffs yesterday morning, but the FBI did not return numerous calls seeking confirmation.
Later, the store's roll-down gate was closed but stacked merchandise was visible in the storefront windows, including CDs with Arabic titles, signs for money transfer services, faxing, copying and more.
Sue Lee, the owner of Lee's Continental Fruit and Vegetable on Grove Street near Christopher Columbus Drive, said one of the FBI agents bought something to drink in her store.
"I said, 'What happened, same as last time?'" Lee said, referring to the previous visit by federal authorities to the Mashaallah Grocery. "He said 'Yes,' but who knows?"
Michael Drewniak, spokesman for the U.S. Attorney's Office in Newark, said the FBI activity Downtown was not related to the alleged plot to kill soldiers at Fort Dix.
