KARACHI: A Karachi accountability court has asked National Accountability Bureau (NAB) to present its investigation records in the case against Sindh Assembly Speaker Agha Siraj Hussain Durrani.

He is being investigated in assets beyond known means of income case. The court said on Friday that it has been two months since the inquiry was started. Your inquiry hasn’t been completed yet, observed the judge.

Durrani’s lawyer accused the investigation officer of presenting fake documents. He argued that the arrest is absolutely illegal.

The court asked how long it will take to complete the inquiry and told the investigators to present the records it has collected so far.

Meanwhile Agha Siraj Durrani has on Friday said that Pakistan should negotiate with the International Monetary Fund (IMF). Agha Siraj Durrani appeared before an accountability court and told media in an informal talk that apparently ‘the IMF is dealing with the IMF in the country.’

The speaker said it becomes difficult to conduct assembly session when relationships with the opposition are not good. The reason to constitute assemblies is to take the nation into confidence, he added.

The Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader also told that he does not get time to watch television in jail.
