Sharmila left her Burberry unattended at the Sindh Assembly this morning

Provincial minister Sharmila Farooqi's handbag created quite a stir at the Sindh Assembly today — but you'll never guess why.

The bag wasn't the center of attention because it was super stylish. It caught everyone's eye because Sharmila had left it unattended, leaving fellow ministers to wonder whether there was a bomb in the bag — you know, airport-style 'unattended luggage.'

It was all very confusing, and then even more so when the assembly's speaker Agha Siraj Durrani ordered staff to put the bag in water... probably to stop the bomb inside it from exploding?

The situation did not last long as Sharmila, upon her return, claimed the bag.

From our vantage point the bag looks like a classic Burberry tote, which checks in at $895 or so.

We're pretty sure Sharmila would've been mad if it had ended up in a bucket of water!
