PPP MNA Raja Pervaiz Ashraf will be indicted in three references pertaining to rental power projects on February 8.

An accountability court ordered on Monday the authorities to ensure that all people named in the references are present in court on the day of the indictment.

“We will see if those named in the references need to attend court hearings after they have been indicted,” said Judge Arshad Malik. The cases were filed a long time ago. “Why hasn’t there been any progress?” he asked.
