Arrest warrants for Jam Khan Shoro issued


KARACHI: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has issued arrest warrants for former Sindh MPA Jam Khan Shoro for his alleged involvement in corruption, DawnNewsTV reported on Thursday.

A team has been dispatched to arrest Shoro, a press release issued by the anti-corruption watchdog said. Shoro is facing allegations of illegally allotting 19 plots of the Karachi Development Authority that were worth Rs1 billion.

A NAB official who wished to remain anonymous confirmed that the warrants had been issued and added that the bureau had enough evidence against the former minister to take him into custody and begin cross-examining him. According to the official, Shoro could be arrested any time today.

Soon after NAB issued his arrest warrants, Shoro approached the Sindh High Court for pre-arrest bail. The request was accepted and he was granted protective bail till Nov 8 against surety bonds worth Rs1 million.
