Arrest warrant of former Inspector General Sindh police, Ghulam Haidar Jamali, has been issued by an accountability court on Thursday in a corruption case.

Sindh High Court had cancelled pre-arrest bails of Jamali on Tuesday. But he had disappeared from the court.

Other accused police officials Tanveer Ahmed, Fida Hussain and others appeared in court as the hearing begins today.

The National Accountability Bureau (NAB), which filed a reference in the case last year, pleaded before the court that the accused are responsible for the illegal hiring of 881 people in the Sindh Reserve Police in Hyderabad in 2013-14.

NAB claims that illegal recruitments were made for the posts of constables and computer operators which had caused a loss of over Rs500 million to the state treasurer exchequer.

The court adjourned its hearing till May 25. The lawyers will conduct the cross-examination of the witnesses at the next hearing.
