The National Accountability Bureau on Tuesday submitted in the Islamabad High Court details of its ongoing investigation against former president Asif Ali Zardari in the long-running fake bank accounts case.
NAB Deputy Prosecutor General Sardar Muzaffar Abbasi submitted the bureau’s report detailing the ongoing inquiries against Zardari, after the Pakistan Peoples Party leader had petitioned the court on April 29 to summon the details of all the ongoing cases and inquiries against him.
In the report, NAB has stated that there are a total of 26 inquiries being conducted in relation to the fake accounts case. The bureau has also said that it started its probe into the fake accounts on the Supreme Court’s orders.
