Islamabad: An accountability court in Islamabad on Monday rejected the National Accountability Bureau’s (NAB) request for extending former prime minister Imran Khan’s physical remand in the £190 million case.
Judge Muhammad Bashir of the Islamabad Accountability Court-I presided over the hearing of the corruption case held at Rawalpindi's Adiala jail. The court ordered to send the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) chairman on a 14-day judicial remand.
Imran’s sisters, Aleema Khanum and Noreen Khanum, were also present during the hearing.
On Sunday, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Rawalpindi team visited Adiala jail to investigate Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan in Al-Qadir University Trust cases.
According to sources, four different teams separately interrogated the former prime minister for over two hours. The teams grilled him about different documents and asked him various questions, the sources added.
Officials from the anti-graft watchdog have been visiting Adiala Jail since Nov 15 to investigate the former premier’s role in the case.
Khan and his wife Bushra Bibi are accused of obtaining billions of rupees and hundreds of kanals of land.
