Khursheed Shah terms Memon arrest as stain on NAB


Islamabad, Oct. 25 (TNS): Senior PPP leader Syed Khursheed Shah on Wednesday termed the arrest of Sharjeel Inam Memon as a stain on the NAB.
Talking to journalist here, Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly said “certain state institutions” still discriminate on the basis of political affiliations.
Shah said some institutions still hold prejudiced “mentality of Lahore and Larkana” which needed to be eliminated for good.

He said new NAB Chairman Justice (retd) Javed Iqbal was appointed with great hope that NAB laws will be indiscriminate for all.
However, whatever happened with Sharjeel is a big question mark over impartiality of the anti-graft watchdog, he added.
On Monday, the PPP former provincial minister was arrested by graft buster officials after playing hide-and-seek for over six hours in and outside the Sindh High Court (SHC), which had cancelled his interim pre-arrest bail and ordered NAB to arrest him, along with 11 co-accused in a Rs5.76 billion government advertisements graft scam.
