ISLAMABAD: The National Accountability Bureau Rawalpindi arrested on Wednesday Pakistan People’s Party senior leader Khursheed Shah from near Bani Gala.
According to NAB sources, the PPP leader was arrested in a case pertaining to acquiring assets beyond means of income.
The arrest came after the allegations were proven in the initial investigation against the PPP leader and further inquiry will be carried out in the case.
According to the allegation, the PPP leader allotted to himself an amnesty plot illegally from a cooperative society in Sukkur.
The investigation has been ongoing since August 7 and it was alleged that the PPP leader built bungalows, petrol pumps, hotels, in the name of others (benamidaar).
NAB sources said that Khursheed Shah will be shifted to Sukkur under a physical remand by the probe authority.
NAB Sukkur had summoned Shah through a letter, however, the PPP leader wrote back to the authority, declining to present before it.
