“Important documents pertaining to houses, properties and vehicles were obtained during the raid,” reports quoted a NAB official as saying. “A memo was made of all items seized from Durrani’s house.”
“We made a memo of the seized items in front of Durrani’s family and got his daughter to sign it,” they said and refuted reports that they used force to make Durrani’s daughter sign the memo or harassed his family.
According to reports, a list of all the items seized during the raid will be presented in court. The NAB official said probe against Durrani is heading in the positive direction.
The NAB arrested the Sindh Assembly speaker on February 20. An accountability court on February 21 remanded Durrani in NAB’s custody till March 1.
