KARACHI: Chief Minister Sindh Murad Ali Shah on Thursday said that National Accountability Bureau (NAB) team, which raided Agha Siraj Durrani's residence a day ago, misbehaved with his family.
Shah said so while addressing a press conference in Karachi. He was flanked by Saeed Ghani and Murtaza Wahab. He said one after another allegations were being levelled against the Sindh Assembly speaker.
"Even if there were allegations against Siraj Durrani, his house should not have been raided," the chief minister said. "There were women present inside the house, who were made to stand in the lawn."
Shah alleged that NAB officials entered the house by scaling the walls and breaking the lock. He said his cabinet members reached Siraj Durrani's residence as they came to know of the raid.
"I regret that despite being the chief minister, I could not save the speaker and his family from NAB's terrorism," he said, maintaining, "No law allows NAB to take such an action."
The chief minister further said that NAB officials kept smoking sitting on the sofas inside the house, while one of them also exhaled smoke in the face of a woman of the family.
"Siraj Durrani's daughter was forced to sign on documents. NAB officials threatened that they would not leave the residence if she didn't sign," he told the newsmen.
"We do not know which documents they got signed. It will be revealed in the court."
