Aftab Memon nabbed in Islamabad
ISLAMABAD: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has arrested Pakistan People’s Party leader Aftab Memon, sources disclosed on Friday.
NAB Rawalpindi will present him before an accountability court on Friday to initiate his physical remand, according to the sources.
Memon is accused of illegally allotting land to frontmen of political personalities, the sources added.
A day earlier, PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari criticised NAB and accused it of pressuring political personalities.
NAB has launched probes against PPP leaders and even arrested some in corruption cases.
Last month, Sindh Assembly Speaker and PPP leader Agha Siraj Durrani was arrested for possessing assets beyond known sources of income.
