An accountability court in Islamabad on Thursday granted the NAB two-day transit remand of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader Syed Khursheed Shah in assets beyond means of income case.
Shah, who was arrested a day earlier by NAB in a case pertaining to acquiring assets beyond means of income, will be shifted to Sukkur for investigation.
The accountability watchdog’s prosecutor had requested for three-day transit remand. “How much time will it take to fly to Sukkur,” Judge Bashir asked during hearing. To this, the NAB investigating officer said they will take the PPP stalwart on the first available flight to Sukkur.—INP
