Fake accounts case: Qaim Ali Shah granted pre-arrest bail till April 8
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Tuesday granted pre-arrest bail to Sindh chief minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah till April 8 in the fake accounts case.
The court ordered him to furnish surety bonds worth Rs one million.
An IHC division bench comprising Justice Aamer Farooq and Justice Mohsin Akhtar Kayani granted him the bail.
In his petition, the former Sindh chief minister had contended that the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) had summoned him on Wednesday, March 27 and he fears that he may be arrested upon his appearance. The petition further stated that Shah is 85-year-old and is entitled to pre-arrest bail due to his age.
During preliminary arguments, Shah's counsel told the court that NAB had summoned the ex-CM in connection with an investigation into Thatta Sugar Mills and Dadu Sugar Mills.
The court observed that the instant petition was about NAB's call up notice in the Thatta Sugar Mills inquiry. The counsel replied that he would file another petition for the second NAB notice regarding Dadu Sugar Mills.
Shah had named NAB Chief Justice (retd) Javed Iqbal and director general of the bureau as respondents.
Meanwhile, the IHC has reserved the verdict on the application filed by Nimar Majeed for giving details of all cases.
