Assets Case: Fazl Ur Rehman’s close aide sent to jail

An accountability court on Monday sent Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazal-ur-Rehman’s close aide Moosa Khan to jail on judicial remand.

The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) produced him before the court on expiry of his remand and informed that the corruption watchdog has completed its investigation against him, due to which his custody is not needed.

The court sent the accused to jail on judicial remand until the next hearing. It is noteworthy that the Peshawar High Court is expected to take up his bail on October 7.

The national graft buster had arrested Moosa Khan on September 23 on charges of amassing assets disproportionate to sources of his income. He is a former DFO and his eldest son Tariq Baloch is Fazl’s personal secretary.
