ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Peoples Party senior leader Syed Khurshid Shah on disproportionate assets charges will be produced before Accountability Court in Sukkur court on Saturday for further remand.
Shah, whose health deteriorated soon after he was arrested, was rushed to a hospital in Islamabad and doctors discharged him on Friday after a few medical tests. Shah is currently in NAB Islamabad’s custody.
Earlier, National Assembly Members of the opposition Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) and Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fzal (JUI-F)—wearing black arm ribbons registered strong protest inside and outside the Parliament building against arrest of the PPP leader by the NAB and non-production of their arrested fellow members including former president Asif Ali Zardari, Khwaja Saad Rafiq, Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, Rana Sanaullah, Mohsin Dawar and Ali Wazir.
Parliamentarians from the opposition benches gathered in front of the Speaker’s chair demanding him to give floor to Ahsan Iqbal who wanted to respond to allegations levelled by Minister for Communications Murad Saeed.
The deputy speaker told the opposition he had already allowed five opposition members to speak on points of order.
