KARACHI: An accountability court on Friday adjourned the hearing of an illegal assets reference against Sindh Assembly Speaker Agha Siraj Durrani and others until August 7.
Agha Siraj and other accused were produced before the court in the hearing.
The court adjourned the hearing due to the absence of the National Accountability Bureau’s investigation officer, Asif Raza, who couldn’t appear due to other NAB cases in Sindh High Court (SHC).
The compliance report about serving the court notice to absconding accused could not be submitted to the court today.
Siraj Durrani talking to media repeated his lament about being in detention. “I am in detention, don’t know what is happening outside,” replying media questions he said. “I am not going anywhere. My younger brother is going to perform Hajj,” he told a reporter.
“A politician always loves to remain in public. I am being kept in prison for six months without public dealing, but soon I will among them,” he said.
