Court grants interim bail to Usman Buzdar


LAHORE, Nov 19 (DNA): An accountability court in Lahore on Saturday granted interim bail to former Punjab chief minister Usman Buzdar in an assets beyond means case.

The court has stopped the National Accountability Bureau from arresting ex-chief minister Buzdar till November 30. The court has also sought a reply from the anti-graft watchdog. 

Barrister Momin Malik appeared before the court on behalf of Buzdar and presented his arguments.  He said the NAB inquiry against former Punjab chief minister was a political victimization of his client. He said his client feared that the bureau might have arrested him and beseeched the court to accept Buzdar’s bail application.
