The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) team has shifted PPP leader Faryal Talpur to Adiala Jail from Polyclinic hospitals.
Ms Talpur was brought to Polyclinic on Friday from National Accountability Bureau (NAB). The Islamabad chief commissioner declared her ward to be a ‘sub-jail’, and NAB officials and police were deployed in the ward and outside the hospital, respectively.
Talpur’s arrest drew condemnation from PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, who in a statement shared on Twitter, questioned what law permitted shifting of a woman prisoner to jail at midnight against the advice of the doctors.
“Shifting of Faryal Talpur to jail on Eid is part of political victimisation,” Bilawal continued. “Our traditions and culture, along with the laws, have been [crushed] in Naya Pakistan.” “Imran Khan, at a time when occupied Kashmir is under a lockdown, is busy with political victimisation,” he added.
She was arrested in June in connection with a case pertaining to alleged money laundering through fake accounts.
