Just few days after an accountability court granted bail to Pakistan Peoples Party chairman, Khursheed Shah in assets beyond means case, the Sindh High Court (SHC) on Monday (Dec 23) has suspended decision to release Shah.
According to details, a special bench comprising Justice Naimatullah Phulpoto and Justice Khadim Hussain Tunio conducted proceedings on the matter and postponed the bail of ex-opposition leader in National Assembly. The court said that the issue will be raised in next hearing on January 16.
Earlier, 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.
