On Wednesday, the Sindh High Court (SHC) extended the bail of Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader Nisar Khuhro in three cases till March 17.
According to the details, the Sindh High Court (SHC) heard the pre-arrest bail petition of Nisar Khuhro in assets beyond income and misuse of power cases.
During the hearing, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) prosecutor told the court that the probe against Nisar Khuhro is in the inquiry phase and a progress report will be presented after the conclusion of the investigation.
The court directed the NAB prosecutor to submit the progress report till March 17.
The SHC judge approved the extension of Khuhro’s bail and adjourned the hearing till March 17.
It should be noted that PPP Leader Nisar Khuhro, who served as the opposition leader, Sindh Assembly speaker, and food minister, is facing a number of graft cases including alleged irregularities in wheat procurement, assets beyond income and misuse of power instituted by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB). He is also being investigated over his alleged involvement in money laundering.
The provincial president for Pakistan People’s Party Nisar Ahmed Khuhro said past week that there were only two ways to get rid of the incumbent government which were through either tabling no-confidence motion in the parliament or mobilizing masses.
Khuhro said it was the now Prime Minister Imran Khan who used to incite people into laying siege of the parliaments. He gathered two to three thousand people and claimed masses stood by his side, PPP Sindh president Nisar Khuhro said while talking to media.
He said, “we will keep reminding the current government of its means to getting to power today so it realizes how it incited people into building pressure on parliament and in fact termed the parliament sham,” Khuhro said. PPP will keep reminding them this until they voluntarily pack up and go home, he said.
