Zardari and his sister Faryal Talpur on Tuesday appeared before the court second time, while the court issued notice to the chief secretary of Sindh over absence of other accused persons in the same case.

NAB prosecutor Sardar Muzaffar Abbasi told the court that some accused persons in the case were imprisoned in Karachi’s Malir Jail and were not produced during today’s hearing.

Meanwhile,Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Tuesday said that he wants the “powers in the country to mainstream victims of terrorism, not banned organisations.”

While speaking to the media in Quetta while visiting the families of those killed in the Hazarganji blast last week, Bilawal said it is unfortunate that even after so much blood has flown, the state cannot decide if it is with the martyrs or the terrorists. 

“The government has to decide. For how long will they continue with their double standards?” he asked.

The PPP chairman continued, “No one can fight extremism alone but we have to decide for the future. We need to fight this extremist mindset. When we ask for justice we are called an enemy of the state. When I speak against banned organisations, I’m branded an enemy of the state.”
