NAB files over Rs230mln reference against PPP leader Khurshid Shah

NAB files over Rs230mln reference against PPP leader Khurshid Shah
December 19, 2019
SUKKUR (92 News) – The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has filed a reference amounting to over Rs230 million against PPP leader Syed Khurshid Shah. As many as 18 people have been nominated in the reference filed in the accountability court. The nominated people include Khurshid Shah, his wives Bibi Talat and Bibi Gulnaz, sons Furrukh Shah and Zeerak Shah and nephew and Sindh Minister Awais Qadir Shah. The reference includes 600 acres of agricultural land, accounts and plots and Karachi and Sukkur. On December 18, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) challenged the order of the accountability court to release PPP leader Khursheed Shah in the Sindh High Court (SHC). In the petition, the NAB contended that the order to release Khursheed Shah is against the law and hence should be declared null and void. On December 17, Accountability Court Judge Ameer Ali Mehaisar had ordered to release PPP leader Syed Khurshid Ali Shah in the assets beyond income case. The court had ordered the PPP leader to furnish the surety bonds worth Rs five million. Khurshid Shah’s counsel said that the NAB could not produce any solid evidence so far and the case against his client is unjustified. "The NAB failed to file a reference against Khurshid Shah in 90 days," he contended. He had prayed to court to quash the case against Khurshid Shah. He stated that they will appear before the NAB whenever summoned.
