KARACHI: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Khurram Sher Zaman on Monday submitted a resolution in the provincial assembly condemning a move by the Sindh government declaring the chamber of Sindh Assembly Speaker Agha Siraj Durrani a ‘sub-jail’.

Last year, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) initiated an investigation against Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader Durrani for possessing assets beyond his income.

He is currently in the custody of the anti-corruption body in connection with the graft case.

“Declaring Sindh Assembly as a ‘sub-prison’ is a disgrace to the assembly,” said the resolution.

PTI’s resolution also demanded the Sindh government to immediately withdraw its decision in this regard.

Khurram Sher Zaman had earlier confirmed through a tweet that Durrani was shifted to his chamber instead of the prison following the Sindh government’s latest declaration.
