Agha Siraj Durrani To Be Produced Before Accountability Court Today

KARACHI: Sindh Assembly Speaker Agha Siraj Durrani will be produced before an accountability court in Karachi by National Accountability Bureau (NAB) in assets beyond known sources of income case.

According to details, Siraj Durrani will appear before accountability room no. III where the accountability watchdogs will seek an extension in physical remand of the senior politician.

On this occasion, several PPP supporters have gathered outside the court.

Earlier on February 21, an accountability court remanded Sindh Assembly Speaker Agha Siraj Durrani in custody of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) till March 01.

NAB apprehended Speaker Sindh Assembly from Islamabad hotel on Wednesday over charges of financial irregularities in government funds from a five-star hotel of Islamabad.

Siraj appeared before accountability courtroom no. III where NAB prosecutor told before the court that Sindh assembly speaker is a suspect in assets beyond the known source of income case.

He, further, pleaded AC to give Siraj Durrani in physical remand of the accountability watchdogs for 14 days.

On the other hand, the under-arrest politician’s lawyer claimed that NAB officers had misbehaved with family members, particularly women of the household during their raid at Siraj Durrani’s house.

The lawyer added, “NAB officials harassed women at his house. Agha Siraj Durrani is being made target of personal enmity and nothing else, therefore, there’s no need for a physical remand”.
