An accountability court in Sukkur extended the judicial remand of senior PPP leader Khursheed Shah by a fortnight. Shah was arrested on September 18, 2019, from Islamabad after being accused of making assets beyond means. A large number of the PPP supporters gathered outside the court as Shah was brought by the NAB Sukkur for the hearing. The PPP leader will now be produced before the court on December 7. Earlier in October, Shah was admitted to the National Institute of Cardiovascular Diseases in Sukkur. Officials of the National Accountability Bureau shifted Shah to the medical facility after he complained of chest pain. In August, NAB had converted an inquiry against Shah into an investigation.
