KARACHI (92 News) – Former Sindh information minister Sharjeel Inam Memon will be presented in the accountability court (AC) today (Tuesday) in Rs 5.77 billion corruption reference. The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) had arrested PPP leader Sharjeel Memon after the Sindh High Court cancelled his bail in the Rs 5.77 billion corruption reference. His 11 accomplices had also been arrested. After the bail cancellation, he tried to evade the arrest by restricting himself to the Bar Room for five hours. The NAB officials waited for him outside the Bar Room. Meanwhile, PPP leaders Imdad Pitafi, Jam Khan Shoro, Makesh Chawala and Fayyaz Butt reached the Bar Room. On the other hand, Sharjeel Memon moved an application to the chief justice, pleading that his arrest should be stayed until filing of an appeal in the Supreme Court. However, his application could not be heard because the court time was over. The PPP workers and the NAB officials scuffled with each other over the issue. However, the Rangers controlled the situation. After his arrest, he was shifted to NAB Headquarters. On the other hand, PPP chairman Bilwal Bhutto Zardari had said that the arrest of Sharjeel Memon is a proof of the hypocrisy of the National Accountability Bureau. Reacting to the arrest of Sharjeel Memon in a tweet, he said that there are two laws in the country – one for the Sharifs and another for Sharjeel Memon.
