Following the raids, a large number of PTI workers reached the property and protested against the police action. PTI leader Ali Haider Zaidi, who was also present on the occasion, chastised the police for not following the law and conducting raids without either a search warrant or an arrest warrant.

“Police should follow the law, not take dictations from corrupt ministers!” Ali Haider Zaidi later tweeted.

The incident has sparked a lot of criticism of the Sindh police and PPP’s governance in the province.

“Once again, on the instructions of the Sindh government of the People’s Party, the Sindh Police tried to enter the house of the opposition leader of the Sindh Assembly without any warrant. People’s Party has a habit of doing very stupid things. They think they will rule for life,” tweeted Arsalan Taj, MPA and Information Secretary of PTI’s Sindh Chapter.

“Is that Bollywood? Police in a fictional country! How can police in a real country be so pathetically illegal?” one of Pakistan’s leading journalists Dr. Moeed Pirzada said while also reacting to the incident.

Some unconfirmed reports also circulated that said the raids were conducted due to the possible presence of members of the land mafia at Haleem Adil Sheikh’s house. Earlier, a case was registered against Haleem Adil Sheikh under a section of the Anti-Terrorism Act at the Gulshan-e-Maymar police station.
