SUKKUR: National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Thursday will produce Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader Khursheed Shah before the Sukkur’s accountability court in assets beyond income matter.
According to the details, strict security measures have been taken to prevent accidents.
Previously, the anti-corruption watchdog had decided to form a joint investigation team to investigate cases against former opposition leaders in the National Assembly.
On September 18, NAB arrested Syed Khursheed Shah, a senior PPP leader, in a case related to what he called a financially strong case. A short handwritten statement issued by NAB Islamabad said, “NAB Sukkur arrested Syed Khursheed Shah, the means involved exceeded the means.”
NAB investigates multiple corruption cases against Shah. In 2012, an accountability court requested the National Bank to prosecute him for allegations that he had collected illegal assets.
In 2013, the NAB reopened two corruption cases against Shah in accordance with instructions from the Lahore Supreme Court.
In July of this year, the retired judge of NAB president Javed Iqbal approved nine investigations aimed at various people, including Shah.
