Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) central leader Syed Khursheed Shah Saturday released from Central Jail Sukkur after two years long detention from National Accountability Bureau (NAB).
According to the 24News HD TV channel, the Supreme Court of Pakistan (SCP) accepted the PPP leader’s bail in the assets beyond sources of income case a day ago and directed him to submit bonds worth Rs10 million as the surety.
Giving the bail, SC Justice Umar Atta Bandial also directed the NAB to continue its investigations in the case but could not keep him in jail permanently.
On his release from Central Jail Sukkur, the PPP workers and local leaders warmly welcomed Khursheed Shah and took him to his residence in a convoy.
The charged workers of PPP showered rose petals on the former opposition leader in the National Assembly and chanted slogans in favour of the party leadership.
Khursheed Shah was arrested by the NAB on Sep 18, 2019.
