It will be the first hearing of the case since it got shifted to Islamabad from Karachi.

Other people accused of money laundering include Hussain Lawai, Abdul Ghani Majeed, Anwar Majeed, Nimr Majeed and Kamal Majeed of the Omni Group.

Six people have been detained so far. The court ordered to produce all of them – including Aslam Masood who is in FIA custody and Aftab Memon who has been remanded into NAB custody – at the next hearing.

Separately, the NAB Rawalpindi has ordered former Sindh chief minister Qaim Ali Shah to appear at the old NAB Headquarters on March 27.

NAB has directed him to bring the relevant record of the Thatta and Dadu sugar mills. NAB said it found the two sugar mills are connected with the fake accounts case.

Earlier on March 20, PPP Chairperson Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and his father appeared before the NAB Rawalpindi’s interrogators at its regional office in Islamabad. They are being investigated for possession of bullet-proof vehicles and the Park Lane case.

NAB suspects that vehicles and the land for the Park Lane firm were purchased through the fake accounts. They were grilled for an hour and a half by two separate teams.

Asif Zardari and Bilawal Zardari own the Park Lane Estate company, which is a Karachi-based real estate firm. The anti-graft watchdog had initiated an inquiry against them on the charges that they illegally transferred forest land to the firm in collusion with some government officials.
