Khursheed Shah to be produced before NAB court

SUKKUR (Dunya News) – 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 details, stringent security arrangements have been taken to avoid any untoward incident.

Earlier, the anti-corruption watchdog had decided to form a Joint Investigation Team (JIT) to probe into the case against former opposition leader in National Assembly.

On Sept 18, the NAB had 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.

In July this year, NAB Chairman retired justice Javed Iqbal had approved nine inquiries against different personalities, including Shah.
