SUNDAY TIMES PESHAWAR: A bench of the high court, however, allowed the corruption watchdog to continue with its investigation against Amir Muqam and directed it to furnish comments on his petition on the next hearing.

NAB would have to issue arrest warrants for the petitioner ten days before his arrest, if it needed his custody, ruled the court.

The PML-N leader’s lawyer stated before the court that the bureau had been carrying out investigation against his client for allegedly amassing assets disproportionate to his sources of income. “NAB summons people for inquiry and arrests them,” he added.
