Supreme Court of Pakistan (SC) has set the hearing of a petition from former President and PPP Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari and his sister Faryal Talpur seeking to shift their graft cases to Sindh province on Tuesday.

Both Asif Ali Zardari and Faryal Talpur have reached out to the apex court to get their cases transferred to the Karachi from Islamabad as the latter was facing a single reference against her while the former was facing trial in five NAB references.

A three-member special bench headed by Justice Umar Ata Bandial and comprising of Justice Ijaz Ul Ahsan and Justice Sajjad Ali Shah will hear the case on June 8. The Supreme Court has issued notices for the hearing to the NAB and other respondents in the case.—APP
