While hearing the case, the accountability court conditioned the proceedings of reference with the arrest of Ishaq Dar.

“The proceedings of the reference cannot move ahead further until Ishaq Dar is arrested and produced in court,” the court said and adjourned the hearing of the reference till the arrest of Ishaq Dar.
