Sindh’s ex-minister Sharjeel Memon released after brief detention
New Delhi. 19March. Sharjeel Inam Memon, the former information minister in the PPP-led government in Sindh-Pakistan, was released late Saturday night after he was arrested soon after a flight carrying him landed at the Islamabad airport.
According to Pak media reports, the PPP leader was released after the National Accountability Bureau verified the bail papers that his counsel had submitted to the bureau.
Memon, who is facing a multibillion-rupee corruption case in the National Accountability Bureau (NAB), was arrested by the bureau’s officials from the runway after his flight from Dubai landed at the airport.
According to Pak media reports, Four provincial ministers of Sindh Mukesh chawla, Imdad Pitafi, Fayyaz Butt and Taimor Talpur were accompanying Memon when he was taken into custody.
Rawal Sharjeel Memon, son of sharjeel memon wrote on micro bloging site twitter,
“This is ridiculous. My father sharjeel memon had decided to return back to pak. On arrival he has been arrested forcefully from runway.”
“He (sharjeel memon) was brave enough to return despite knowing there was a great chance of being arrested. Moreover the Question now is who arrested him.”
Rawal Sharjeel Memon wrote,
“This needs to end asap. There are plenty members of the PPP who have been arrested by namaloom then harassed/ beaten. Later found innocent.”
