ISLAMABAD: PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif’s former accounts officer Mohammad Akram was allegedly abducted by FIA personnel who interrogated him for information regarding the Sharif family and their businesses, Express News reported.

Akram said that he was going home after saying his prayers when men in a blue jeep forced him to get in and took him away to an undisclosed location where they interrogated him saying that since he had been associated with their business for so many years he would have details.

They asked for details regarding money laundering, offshore accounts and bankers who handled the Sharif’s accounts.

He said that they interrogated him for four hours after which his state deteriorated, causing them to drop him back. Akram registered a complaint in the Shadman police station.

Rana Sanullah took notice during the Punjab Assembly and said that an investigation team consisting of top officials will be formed to conduct investigations.

FIA director and personnel in the Lahore department denied involvement in the matter, but some unnamed officials said that teams from Islamabad often conducted such raids without prior notice.

    A shameful incident, hope Mr. Sharif will not respond with emotions or take a irrational step. Such acts do qualify under “Political Terrorism” against its own people, where no citizen can even walk without feeling safe. Wakeup, brothers n sisters please wakeup n take your beloved country, out of the hands of corrupt n un-patriotic setup-before it’s too late.

    Now the shoe is on the other foot, how does it feel? Thousands of Baloch youth have been abducted and their mutilated bodies are found every now and then. Yet there has not been much outrage by most. Salman Taseer was murdered and then his son kidnapped no problem for Punjab govt. This man is lucky that he was only interrogated and came home. Let us condemn all killings and abductions not just one.
