An accountability court here ordered authorities on Saturday to attach the properties of Zain Malik, a builder and the son-in-law of property tycoon Malik Riaz, in a case pertaining to illegal amalgamation of commercial land for a multi-storeyed building in Karachi.
Former Karachi mayor and Pak Sarzameen Party chairman Syed Mustafa Kamal, former Karachi district coordination officer Fazlur Rehman, former executive district officer Iftikhar Qaimkhani are also among those nominated in the case that has been filed by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).
The matter came up before the accountability court-III judge Sher Bano Karim on Saturday, when Kamal and other suspects appeared before the court. Malik, who the watchdog claims is absconding since the present reference was filed in June 2019, was absent. The court has already issued arrest warrants for Malik and has initiated the process to proclaim him an absconder.
