NAB seeks court to order sale of Ishaq Dar’s assets

An accountability court here on Friday sought details of the seized assets of former finance minister Ishaq Dar.

Judge Muhammad Bashir summoned these details on a plea by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) to sell the PML-N leader’s assets over his inability to appear in court to face trial in a case filed against him for allegedly accumulating assets beyond his known sources of income.
