Mahar remanded for 14 days



An accountability court on Monday approved 14-day physical remand of the alleged front man of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) stalwart Syed Khursheed Shah and provincial minister Syed Awais Qadir Shah. Zabardast Khan Mahar, the alleged front man of Awais Shah who is nephew of Syed Khursheed Shah, was arrested by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) in Ali Wahan area of Rohri on September 29. The anti-graft watchdog produced him before the court and sought 15-day long physical remand from the AC for further investigation. The court, however, issued a 14-day long physical remand and ordered the NAB to produce the accused before the court on October 15. It is pertinent to mention here that the NAB had also seized important documents during the raid on his residence and factory after detaining him.—INP
