The anti-graft watchdog had arrested Faryal Talpur on Friday and declared her house as a sub-jail, after her brother Asif Ali Zardari was arrested upon dismissal of their permanent bail application by the Islamabad High Court (IHC) in connection to a mega-money laundering allegedly through fake banks accounts.
