SHC extends Manzoor Wassan’s pre-arrest bail

KARACHI:Sindh High Court (SHC) on Tuesday extended the pre-arrest bail of Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader Manzoor Wassan in assets beyond income case.


A two-member bench of the SHC heard a petition filed by Manzoor Wassan through his counsel Naeem Iqbal, challenging investigation against him by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).


The NAB prosecutor told the court that the NAB will submit its response to the court after getting instruction from the chairman regarding the probe against the accused.
