KARACHI: The National Accountability Bureau has completed its probe in a land allotment case involving Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf MPA from Sindh, Firdous Shamim Naqvi, the agency informed the Sindh High Court on Wednesday.

A high court bench heard the case during which a prosecutor informed the high court the decision to file reference in the case will be taken by NAB chief retired Justice Javed Iqbal.

During the proceedings, the defense expressed fear that the dirty money watchdog might attempt to arrest Naqvi and requested the court to grant him protective bail. At this, the court approved his bail until November 4 before adjourned the hearing.
