PPP's Supporter Raise Voice For Detained Asif Ali Zardari

Former President of Pakistan Asif Ali Zardari on Tuesday was arrested by a 15-member team of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB), accompanied by police personnel.

According to the sources, NAB Islamabad will keep Asif Ali Zardari in NAB Rawalpindi's lockup for tonight. He denies wrongdoing in this latest "fake accounts" case.

A PPP supporter in Bury, England, criticized the PTI government for "political victimization" against the party's co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari.

"The government has no role in [the arrest]", Interior Minister Ejaz Shah told parliament, saying it was a court decision.

Faryal Talpur and Asif Zardari arrest order is issued in the fake accounts case and money laundering case.


Pakistan's Supreme Court established a commission in September to investigate, finding that at least $400 million (£315 million) had passed through "thousands of false accounts".

NAB team has arrived at Zardari House Islamabad to take Asif Zardari into custody.

The PML-N president demanded Asad Qaiser to issue the production order for Zardari.

The case came to the fore in 2015 following an investigation by the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA).

"So the NAB is moving very fast after the court announced that it would not renew the pre-arrest bail".


Sources further said Pakistan People's Party has chose to file appeal against the judgement of IHC.

Khan, a longtime foe of Zardari, was elected prime minister past year after running a heated campaign vowing to crackdown on corruption.
