Accountability court on Tuesday postponed indictment of former president Asif Ali Zardari in Thatta water supply reference till August 7. The hearing was presided over by AC Judge Muhammad Azam Khan. At the outset of hearing, a reply was sought from NAB on Zardari’s plea seeking dismissal of the reference against him.
The court granted exemption from court’s appearance to Asif Ali Zardari. The proceedings were deferred till August 7 due to absence of PPP leader’s lawyer Farooq H. Naek.
