(Karachi) Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leaders Haleem Adil Sheikh and Firdous Shamim Naqvi have announced that they would approach the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) to launch an investigation into corruption charges against the Sindh government.

Addressing a press conference in Karachi on Sunday, Sheikh who is facing a NAB probe over alleged encroachment and sale of 257 acres of state land, said he will face the corruption watchdog whenever he is summoned for questioning.

“There is no truth in these allegations,” he said. "I just got four acres on lease where I set up a poultry farm after obtaining a loan," he maintained.

Accusing the Anti-Corruption Establishment Sindh of initiating a witch-hunt against him after he held a rally against Omni Group, owned by former president Asif Ali Zardari’s close aide Anwar Majeed, Haleem Adil Sheikh said it cooked up a plethora of lies to implicate him.

He also denied money laundering allegations levelled against him and sought constitution of a judicial commission to probe encroachments on state land in Karachi’s Malir district.

Speaking on the occasion, Naqvi said the PPP-led Sindh government is involved in corrupt practices. He called for a probe into allegations against PPP ministers.
