After bail of former President and Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) co-chairman Asif Zardari and his sister Faryal Talpur, now another PPP leader got relief as an accountability court on Tuesday (Dec 17) granted bail to Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP) senior leader Syed Khursheed Shah in assets beyond mean case.
The court ordered the PPP leader to submit surety bonds worth Rs5 million.
On Sept 18, the NAB arrested senior PPP leader Syed Khursheed Shah in a case regarding his alleged assets beyond means. “NAB Sukkur arrested Syed Khursheed Shah in the assets beyond means case,” a brief handwritten statement issued by NAB Islamabad said.
Multiple corruption cases against Shah are under investigation with NAB. In 2012, an accountability court had directed NAB to file a reference against him on a complaint pertaining to alleged accumulation of illegitimate assets. In 2013, NAB had reopened two corruption cases against Shah under the directives of the Lahore High Court.
