The Islamabad High Court on Tuesday (Dec 17) has granted bail to Pakistan Peoples Party’s senior leader and sister of former President Asif Ali Zardari in a case pertaining to mega money laundering through fake bank accounts case.
The IHC has ordered the PPP leader to submit Rs10 million as surety bonds. Earlier, Talpur in her petition argued said that she is the mother of a differently-abled child. She asked the court to grant bail so that she can care for her child until the completion of the trial.
Talpur was arrested by the National Accountability Bureau on June 14. Its worth mentioning here that the Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Wednesday (Dec 11) has granted bail to former President Asif Ali Zardari on Medical grounds.
Zardari, Talpur, Omni Group’s Anwar Majid and his sons, and the former Pakistan Stock Exchange chairperson Hussain Lawai are among those being investigated in a case related to money laundering of billions through fictitious bank accounts. In December 2015, the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) initiated a discreet investigation into certain bank accounts through which multi-billion rupee transactions have been made after some information came to the fore when an intelligence agency picked up a prominent money changer in an unrelated case.
