Karachi—The Sindh government has decided to request the federal government to constitute a judicial commission to probe the actions taken by Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) in Sindh province.
A statement issued on Saturday says that Federal Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has offered PPP chief Asif Ali Zardari that he was ready to constitute a judicial commission to probe the raids and seizures of FIA in Sindh, if the latter desired so.
The spokesman of the Sindh government said, “Yes, the Sindh government would appreciate if Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan, in order to keep the record straight, takes a bold initiative to constitute a judicial commission into the FIA raids in Sindh,” and added that FIA had taken away more than 15,000 files of Karachi Metropolitan Corporation.
The Sindh government is of the view that the FIA had no authority and jurisdiction to conduct raids in the offices of provincial government.
