A team of the Pakistan Standards & Quality Control Authority (PSQCA) on Thursday raided an oil mill owned by former Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) director general Bashir Memon in Shahdadpur Town, Sanghar District, and checked all its record. 

The raid came days after Bashir Memon alleged that he was summoned to the "highest office" during his tenure and was told to file a terrorism case against members of PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz's social media cell after a picture of First Lady Bushra was circulated on social media. 

Talking to the media on Thursday, Bashir Memon confirmed the raid on his Al-Mujtaba Oil Mill and said the authority staff conducted a surprise raid, checked the record and left. He however said the authority staff did not take any punitive action against his oil mill. 

Bashir Memon had resigned on November 20, 2019, days before he was supposed to retire, as a mark of protest against his posting to another place at a time when he was just a few days away from his retirement date. 

The Pakistan Standards & Quality Control Authority (PSQCA) works under the Federal Ministry of Science and Technology. Senator Shibli Faraz is currently holding the portfolio of the Federal Ministry of Science and Technology.
