Rasheed, a strong ally of Imran Khan’s PTI, continued to be the coalition government’s Achilles’ heel and to make headlines for his outspoken nature.
According to reports in the local media, ETPB representatives, Federal Investigators, and local police sealed Rasheed’s well-known residence early on Monday in accordance with the court’s orders.
The operation was directed by the deputy administrator of the Evacuee Trust Board, who asserts that the former interior minister and his brother Sheikh Siddique have been occupying a historic home’s seven acres of property illegally. The officials claimed that Rasheed also declined to produce the property’s documentation.

Rasheed criticised the authorities for their most recent action on Twitter. His account uploaded CCTV footage that demonstrates a sizable contingent of FIA and capital police officers arriving in buses and patrol cars.
The outspoken politician said that a press conference would be held today at 5 pm to criticise authorities for using Rangers and paramilitary officials.
Sheikh Rasheed’s political office is located in the renowned Rawalpindi mansion. It is a historical structure that can be found in the garrison city’s Bohar Bazaar.
According to reports, Lal Haveli was owned by a Hindu woman prior to the split, and once the leader of the Awami Muslim League entered parliamentary politics in the 1980s, it was converted into a political office.
