A five-member team of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) raided the residence of Adviser to the Sindh Chief Minister on Prisons and Provincial Coordination Aijaz Jakhrani. Sources said the team seized records pertaining to Jacobabad’s local government department after carrying out a search of the house.
A large number of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) workers and leaders, including Provincial Minister of Sindh for Local Government Saeed Ghani, reached Jakhrani’s residence after getting information about the raid. The anti-graft watchdog has launched a probe against the PPP leader over alleged accumulation of assets disproportionate to his known sources of income, the sources said. He has also been accused of owning benami accounts and assets.
Fearing his arrest by NAB, Mr Jakhrani has already obtained pre-arrest bail from the Sindh High Court. The bureau had previously requested the federal government to put Aijaz Jakhrani on ECL.
