NAB gets two-day transit remand of Khursheed Shah

Islamabad (Staff Report): An accountability court on Thursday granted two-day transit remand of PPP leader Khursheed Shah.


The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) presented Shah before the court and requested for three-day transit remand.

"How much time will it take to fly to Sukkur," Judge Bashir asked.

To this, the NAB investigating officer said they will take the PPP stalwart on the first available flight to Sukkur.

The court then granted two-day transit remand of the Shah to NAB.

On Wednesday, the NAB arrested Shah in assets beyond means case.

According to sources, the anti-corruption watchdog initiated an investigation against the former Opposition Leader in National Assembly last month (August 7).

NAB Sukkur had summoned Shah through a letter, however, the PPP leader wrote back to the authority, declining to present before it.
