ISLAMABAD: An accountability court on Thursday, while hearing the National Accountability Bureau’s case against Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Ahsan Iqbal, gave the bureau one-month time to file a reference against the accused in the Narowal Sports City case.
Accountability judge Muhammad Bashir conducted the hearing without the suspect as the PML-N leader did not appear in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak.
The accountability court had earlier directed the anti-corruption watchdog to file reference in the aforementioned case till March 26.
The PML-N leader has been alleged of misuse of power in the case.
Iqbal was released after the Islamabad High Court (IHC) accepted his bail petition in February.
