A joint investigation team was also prepared to investigate Murad Ali Shah. He was summoned by the anti-graft body earlier as well regarding the aforementioned cases, and the CM had submitted replies to the NAB queries.
Let it be known that the anti-corruption watchdog had already filed reference against six suspects including former president Asif Ali Zardari in these cases. Furthermore, Omni Group’s Anwar Majeed along with his son, banker Hussain Lawai and others were arrested by the NAB.
On the other hand, Murad Ali Shah talked to media in Karachi and maintained that he received the NAB letter a night before yesterday and details will only be revealed when a questionnaire will be handed over to him.
The Sindh chief minister also suggested the federation to fulfill its own responsibilities instead of interfering in provincial affairs. He further advised Federal Minister for Maritime Affairs Ali Zaidi to stay away from Sindh issues and let the government work.
