Talking to The Express Tribune, the PPP leader expressed anger over the police raid on his house. Bhayo claimed that the police broke into his house and arrested 10 of his employees, including his driver, cooks and others, on fake charges of robbery.
Bhayo also blamed Abid Bhayo, the special assistant for forests to the chief minister, for instigating the police to raid his house.
The PPP leader added that he has been trying to contact Shikarpur SSP Nasir Aftab since last night but he did not receive any response from him. “Shikarpur SSP claims to be a very honest and dedicated officer but his actions are speaking otherwise,” said Bhayo.
