KARACHI: Sindh High Court (SHC) has reserved verdict in a case pertaining to bail plea of the incumbent Speaker Sindh Assembly Agha Siraj Durrani in assets beyond means case.
During court proceedings today, the court asked as to why the daughters of the speaker were named in the illegal assets case. “Is a 16-year planned to conceal assets in her name,” the judge asked.
The NAB prosecutor responded that the daughters were included in the reference for having benami properties in their name.
“Similar happened in the case of Nawaz Sharif where his daughter and sons were included in the case for having such properties,” the persecutor argued while giving an example but was unable to give a proper reference of it when the judge asked him.
You cannot move ahead while not mentioning a proper reference of the case, the top provincial court judge said.
The prosecutor, however, demanded the provincial apex court judge to reject the bail plea as the accused was influential and could exercise his powers to damage the case if allowed to roam free on bail.
