Khursheed’s sons, ‘frontman’ obtain pre-arrest bail

KARACHI: Fearing possible arrest, two sons of Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Member of National Assembly (MNA) Syed Khursheed Shah and his alleged frontman obtained pre-arrest bail from the Sindh High Court (SHC) in connection with the National Accountability Bureau’s (NAB) investigation against Shah in an illegal assets case.

The petitioners — Zareeq Shah, Farakh Shah and Sayed Qasim Ali Shah, who is said to be a frontman of Shah, submitted in court that they were willing to join the NAB investigation but feared they would be arrested.

The court granted them pre-arrest bail till October 16, and ordered them to submit a surety for the bails.

A day earlier, an accountability court in Islamabad had granted NAB two-day transit remand of Shah.

Shah was arrested on Wednesday night by a NAB team for allegedly accumulating assets disproportionate to known sources of income.
