PPP strongly condemns Khursheed Shah’s arrest


ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leaders condemned the arrest of senior party leader Khursheed Shah by the National Accountability Bureau Rawalpindi on Wednesday. 

Senator Murtaza Wahab spoke to Geo News, saying that several federal ministers are facing inquiries, but they weren’t arrested.

“Whoever criticises the government gets arrested,” said the PPP senator.

PPP Senator Sherry Rehman also strongly criticised the arrest. “There should be any law… whose law is it?” she said.

Chief Minister Sindh Murad Ali Shah said that the PPP senior leader was not evading any investigation and the government made a wrong move by arresting the PPP leader. 

The NAB arrested Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) senior leader Khursheed Shah from near Bani Gala.

According to NAB sources, the PPP leader was arrested in a case pertaining to acquiring assets beyond means of income.

Sources in NAB said the arrest came after allegations were proven in the initial investigation against the PPP leader and that further inquiry would be carried out in the case.
