On Wednesday, Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader Syed Khursheed Ahmed Shah filed a bail petition in the Supreme Court’s Karachi registry through his counsel Senator Mian Raza Rabbani, for bail in assets beyond means case.
According to the petition, the corruption watchdog has so far failed to produce corroborative evidence against him. Assailing the Sindh High Court’s verdict on his bail application, he argued the high court failed to take into account certain facts presented before it in his favor.
Shah moved the top court after the Sindh High Court circuit bench Sukkur turned down his plea for post-arrest bail.
Khursheed Ahmed Shah pleaded with the top court to grant him post-arrest bail in the case.
Earlier on April 22, The Sindh High Court (SHC) rejected an application filed by the PPP lawmaker seeking his release on bail in the assets case.
Khursheed Ahmed Shah currently is in jail on judicial remand. He is facing charges of possessing assets beyond known means of income.
