Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah on Wednesday slammed Minister for Shipping and Maritime Affairs Ali Haider Zaidi for "acting irresponsibly" by releasing what the Minister claimed was the "original" joint investigation team (JIT) report on infamous Lyari gangster Uzair Jan Baloch.

Speaking to reporters outside the National Accountability Bureau office here after being questioned by the anti-graft watchdog, Shah asked how the PTI Minister had obtained the alleged 'original' JIT report.

"I think he revealed someone came to his house on a motorcycle and gave him that report. If he had said that some responsible man gave it to him and now he was revealing it, it might have made sense. But this was not appropriate for a man who is a member of the National Assembly and a sensible person."

A day earlier, Zaidi had said that the JIT comprised six members - one person each from the Special Branch and the Crime Investigation Department, from the Sindh government, as well as officials from the Intelligence Bureau, Rangers, Inter-Services Intelligence and MI, from the federal government, Dawn reported.

He claimed, however, that the two members from Sindh had not signed what he called was the original report, which he said included findings that Uzair Baloch was working at the behest of senior PPP leaders including co-chair Asif Ali Zardari.

Responding to the claim, Shah clarified that the JIT had seven members and not six, adding that the report submitted to the Sindh home department had all seven signatures.

He added that this was the same JIT report that was submitted to the Sindh High Court in a sealed envelope, was read by the honourable judges and then returned to the provincial government.
