Pakistan Peoples Party leader and former Sindh information minister Sharjeel Inam Memon along with 11 other accused was sent on a 10-day judicial remand by an accountability court on Tuesday.
National Accountability Bureau (NAB) submitted that he was medically fit. He and 11 accomplices have been sent to jail till November 4.
Memon was arrested along with 11 accomplices by NAB officials on Monday after over six hours of running back-and-forth inside and outside the Sindh High Court.
The game of ‘catch me if you can’ started after an SHC bench canceled the bail granted to Memon and 11 others. According to Samaa, he was in touch with CM Murad Ali Shah during this game.
NAB officials on Tuesday produced Memon along with other accused before the accountability court, a day after the close aide of Asif Ali Zardari was arrested in a Rs.5.76-billion corruption case. The PPP leader was produced amid tight security while party supporters were not allowed to enter the court premises.
Memon was taken into custody by NAB after Sindh High Court (SHC) rejected his bail plea in the case pertaining to the award of advertisements at ‘exorbitant rates’ through the abuse of his power.
