KARACHI - The pre-arrest bail, interim bails granted to Salman Farooqui and his brother Usman Farooqui in different references filed by National Accountability Bureau (NAB) were confirmed here on Tuesday by a division bench of High Court of Sindh (SHC) comprising Justice Mushir Alam and Justice Munib Akhtar. Salman Farooqui, Principal Secretary to President of Pakistan was facing trial in an Accountability reference pertaining to abuse of authority in allotting Textile quota. The bench admitted him to a bail against a solvent surety of Rs 0.5 million which was confirmed here today. The same court also extended pre-arrest transitory bail to Salman Farooqui in another corruption case pending trial before a NAB court at Rawalpindi. The same bench also confirmed pre-arrest interim bail granted to Usman Farooqui former Chairman of Pakistan Steel Mills (PSM) in a corruption case pertaining to purchase of High Carbon at price much higher than prevailing in open market causing loss of millions to PSM. Challenging the NAB reference, his counsel submitted that none of the allegation against his client had been proved by the accountability court where he had been remained under trial in the corruption charges, but the court acquitted him from the case after having found him innocent. The counsel maintained that the corruption cases against him were baseless, as it was mentioned clearly in the NAB reference that the purchase and other dealings in which PS suffered with massive loses, were approved by the ministry concerned, therefore, there was no any connection of his client regarding such dealings and purchasing, the accountability court found him guiltless in the corruption charges. He was also admitted to interim bail against a solvent surety of rupees 500,000. Bail confirmed The same court has extended bail of former DGM of Port Qasim Sahib Dad Mengal. The applicant was among the NAB beneficiaries, he was charged for misusing of his authority for his interest and exceeded from his authority causing the massive lose of the national exchequer. The DMG has filed an application for bail before arrest on NAB reference through Masooda Qureshi Advocate by submitting that her client had been under trial but the prosecution failed to prove him guilty in the corruption case, therefore the NAB action to reopen the case against him was illogical and irrational. The former Port Qasim official had been charged with corruption and to exceed from his authority, he allegedly provided contract of RCC pipelines as well as other constructions.
