Sindh High Court moved against harassment of FIA DG’s family: report


KARACHI: Sindh High Court (SHC) has been moved by Manzar Bashir Memon, son of Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) Director General (DG) Bashir Memon claiming that the family of Bashir Memon is being harassed and persecuted by influential persons in Sindh, according to a report by a private media outlet.

As per the petition, the names of the “influential political persons”, their associates, and related businesses have not been listed in the petition, for “reasons of secrecy and pendency of the inquiries that are continuing on the advanced level”.

The petitioner claims that in fear of the negative fallout of the inquiries being conducted by the FIA against them, the influential persons and businesses “started using the resources and machinery of the Government of Sindh to pressurise and coerce Bashir to influence the inquiries so as to exact favourable results” from them.

The petitioner has prayed that the SHC direct the respondents identified in the petition to stop harassing or causing any physical or professional harm to the petitioner and his family, and direct Sindh police to ensure foolproof security for the FIA DG’s relatives.
