Peshawar: An Accountability court has accused Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader Asma Arbab and her husband Arbab Alamgir today (Thursday) in a reference blaming them of possessing assets beyond known income sources.
The court has called the witnesses in the case on January 24.
Arbab Alamgir told that he had been giving tax of all his properties regularly, while his wife Asma Arbab labelled it a ‘political revenge’.
The little fight erupted between the party workers and the police that was deployed outside the court when the couple arrived. However, the situation was soon put into under control by the heavy contingent of cops deployed.
The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) had indicted both the suspects of owning assets of around Rs 332 million, which were far more than their known sources of income.
The couple claimed to be innocent and mentioned that all their income sources are known and this is just a case made up out of political vengeance.
The inquiry was authorised on November 4, 2015 that converted into investigation with the approval of NAB executive board on January 12, 2018.
