SUNDAY TIMES LAHORE:The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf  leader filed the petition through his lawyer, contending that the case against him was false and fabricated as there was no evidence available with the NAB to arrest him.

He said the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) had arrested him over charges of his offshore companies and assets beyond known sources of income. He said that he had  already declared his all assets and income details.

The petitioner argued that the bureau has failed to substantiate any allegations against him and pleaded to the court to grant him bail.

According to NAB,  the PTI leader was a common man in year 2000 and suddenly became a millionaire as his assets now worth Rs 871 million. He remained Punjab minister from 2003 to 2007 and set up 35 companies, while his several bank accounts also surfaced, the anti-corruption watchdog claimed.
