ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday said thieves "become Nelson Mandela" after they are arrested.
Speaking to journalists in the Parliament House corridor, the premier said, "Today, Agha Siraj Durrani has been arrested."
"First, they loot the country and then when they are arrested they become Nelson Mandela," the premier added.
PM Imran will attend the National Assembly session scheduled for today.
Earlier today, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) arrested Durrani from Islamabad. NAB had initiated three separate inquiries against Durrani last year for allegedly owning assets beyond means, illegally recruiting 352 individuals on various government positions and embezzlement of funds for the construction of the MPA Hostel and construction of the new Sindh Assembly building.
