SC directs NAB to submit basic material for arrest of Khurshid Shah

ISLAMABAD: 20, OCTOBER, 2021: Supreme Court (SC) on Wednesday has ordered National Accountability Bureau (NAB) to submit basic material for the arrest of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader Khurshid Shah.
During the proceedings, Shah's counsel told the court that "The allegations leveled by the anti-graft watchdog have not been made part of the case".
NAB prosecutor said that the govt has constituted a committee for clearance on the amendment ordinance.
Later, the court has ordered to inform about the reasons behind arresting the PPP leader.
Remember that, the NAB had apprehended senior PPP leader 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.
The PPP stalwart was arrested in a joint operation by NAB's Rawalpindi and Sukkur chapters.
Multiple corruption cases against Shah are under investigation with NAB. (04)
