Zardari arrested in Park Lane case as well

ISLAMABAD: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Monday apprehended Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari in the Park Lane case as well after his warrants were approved by NAB chief Javed Iqbal.

The former president is already in the detention of NAB in the fake bank accounts case after his bail was rejected by the Islamabad High Court last month.

NAB has accused the former president of purchasing 2,460 kanal land in a posh locality in Islamabad through Park Lane Estate (Pvt) Ltd in March 2009.

In 1997, NAB had dropped a case against Zardari pertaining to the same property over lack of evidence. The property worth Rs2billion, was acquired in Rs620 million, said NAB sources.

The report further claimed that the former president can be presented before an accountability court in the next 24 hours.

PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari is also a nominee in the case.

In June, the NAB had arrested Zardari from the federal capital in the fake bank accounts case which pertains to transactions worth over Rs35 billion to the private companies allegedly through fake bank accounts.
