MPA Faryal Talpur approached the Islamabad High Court on Tuesday seeking pre-arrest bail in the fake accounts case.
NAB has summoned her on April 17.
She said, in the petition, that she has been asked to appear at NAB’s Rawalpindi office at 11am. The petition said that she should be given pre-arrest bail because it is expected that NAB will arrest her.
Talpur is the sister of former president Asif Ali Zardari.
Zardari and Talpur are among 170 others whose names emerged in an FIA report on the fake accounts case. On January 7, the Supreme Court sent the fake accounts case to NAB and told it to wrap up the investigation in two months. The matter was taken up by the court over the delay in a 2015 FIA investigation into money laundering via fake bank accounts.
The case is being investigated by NAB Rawalpindi. The anti-graft watchdog has so far filed four references against the former president and his close aides in the fake accounts case.
