The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Tuesday has ordered to release Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Ahsan Iqbal on bail in Narowal Sports City Complex Case.
IHC granted bail to Ahsan Iqbal in Narowal Sports City Complex Case.
The court has ordered Ahsan Iqbal to submit surety bonds of Rs 1 crore for bail.
However, the bench remarked that passport of Ahsan Iqbal will remain in National Accountability Court’s (NAB) custody.
Last month, PML-N lawmaker Ahsan Iqbal had moved the IHC to seek his bail in Narowal Sports City corruption case.
The petition stated that Iqbal has not rejected to appear before the NAB.
It added that he had been arrested on December 19 when Iqbal appeared in an investigation session.
Narowal Sports City Complex Case
Ahsan Iqbal had been accused of using funds of the federal government and Pakistan Sports Board (PSB) for a sports city in Narowal.
He had already filed a reply to a questionnaire given to him by the bureau previously.
The anti-graft watchdog in a statement said it had received a complaint that the Narowal Sports City was constructed at a cost of approximately Rs6 billion, which is a violation of rules and had resulted in heavy losses to the national exchequer.
