A Sukkur accountability court remanded on Pakistan Peoples party leader Khursheed Shah into NAB custody for eight days.
SUKKUR: Khursheed Shah, a senior party leader PPPP , was arrested by teams from NAB’s Rawalpindi and Sukkur bureaus for owning more assets than he should be able to afford. He was shifted to Sukkur yesterday.
Accountbilty Court Judge Ameer Ali Maheser initially asked NAB how it could be asking for Khursheed Shah’s 15-day physical remand without any papers stating the allegations against him. First you present the case files then you ask for the remand, the judge ordered NAB.
NAB prosecutor said the papers were at their office and asked for half an hour to get them. The hearing was adjourned for 30 minutes so that the NAB prosecutor could get the documents.
A large number of PPP workers were present outside the court. Shah’s arrival at the court was delayed because of the massive number of workers who blocked the NAB vehicles.
