The FIA has obtained the physical remand of Anwar Majeed and his son Abdul Ghani Majeed till August 24.
They were presented before a banking court in Karachi on Friday morning in a money laundering scam. The FIA arrested Anwar and his son when they appeared before the Supreme Court on Wednesday.
Anwar is a close aide of former president Asif Ali Zardari and head of the Omni Group. He and his son are being investigated in a case of money laundering of Rs35 billion through fake bank accounts at three local banks.
Another suspect in the case, PPP leader Faryal Talpur, was granted bail before arrest. The FIA has declared former president Asif Ali Zardari and 20 other suspects absconders in the case.
The FIA presented a progress report to the court and asked for the suspects’ physical remand. The suspects are accused of money laundering of billions of rupees through fake bank accounts, said the agency.
Anwar repeatedly asked the FIA personnel to bar the media from filming his entry and exit to the court.
