NAB chief served LHC notice on bail plea of ‘blackmailer’
The LHC bench, comprising Justice Baqar Ali Najafi and Justice Sardar Ahmed Naeem, heard the petition filed by Farooq Nol, who allegedly blackmailed and defrauded innocent people along with his wife Tayyaba Gull.
Gull is the same woman from the leaked audio and video tapes involving the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) chairman.
Last week, the NAB filed a reference in an accountability court against Tayyaba and her husband. The 630-page reference states that Tayyaba and her husband Farooq, along with their accomplices, used to defraud innocent people impersonating officials of secret agencies and NAB.
According to the reference, the investigation revealed that Farooq in connivance with his wife lured and defrauded six complainants, including Hadayat Ullah, Saba Hamid, Safdar Hussain, Muhammad Asif, Muhammad Zahid Iqbal and Niaz Ahmed.
However, the petitioner’s lawyer contended before the court that his client was arrested on the basis of ill-founded and fabricated charges. During the course of Wednesday’s proceedings, the counsel also accused the anti-graft watchdog of misusing its powers.
