The Supreme Court (SC) issued on Wednesday notice to National Accountability Bureau (NAB) over former president Asif Ali Zardari’s petition to transfer his NAB graft cases from Islamabad to Karachi.

An apex court bench, headed by Justice Umar Ata Bandial, also issued notices to the PPP co-chairman’s sister Faryal Talpur and all other people nominated as accused along with Zardari in the graft references.

The SC inquired whether any reference was ever filed against the former president in Islamabad before. Zardari’s counsel replied that references were filed in Lahore and Rawalpindi, while one was also heard in Attock Fort.

Issuing notices to NAB, Faryal Talpur and other respondents in the case, the SC has adjourned the hearing for a month.
