KARACHI (92 News) – A local court in Karachi on Saturday extended the physical remand of former president Zardari close aide and Omni Group chairman Anwar Majeed and his son, Abdul Ghani Majeed, who were arrested in connection to a money laundering case.
Abdul Ghani Majeed son of Anwar Majeed accused in twenty four billion rupees money laundering case was produced by FIA before the judge in city court Karachi today.
The judge on the request of the prosecution has given three-day physical remand of the accused and directed the FIA to produce him before the court on Tuesday.
On Wednesday, the FIA arrested Anwar Majeed and his son Abdul Ghani Majeed when they appeared before Supreme Court. The court also ordered the names of the other three sons of Anwar Majeed to be placed on the exit control list (ECL).
The court has ordered that all assets will be frozen till the JIT completes its investigation. The chief justice assured that if the sons were not involved in the money laundering, they will be cleared.
Earlier, they requested the court to take back the suo motu notice and stop the FIA from investigating the Omni Group’s bank accounts and assets as it was harming business. Anwar had distanced himself from the Omni Group and said he no longer acted as its head due to his poor health.
