On April 10, the Sindh High Court approved his 10-day bail in illegal contract case against surety bonds worth Rs0.2 million. He has been accused of giving illegal contracts as the chairperson of the Sui Southern Gas.

NAB has accused Ismail and former prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi of causing losses worth billions of rupees to the national exchequer by illegally awarding an LNG import contract for a 15-year period to a company of their liking in 2015.

The NAB Karachi had closed the case. The investigation was reopened in October 2018.
