Karachi: An accountability court today indicted Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader Makhdoom Amin Fahim, among eleven people in the National Insurance Company Limited (NICL) land scam case.

Accused in the case include Amin Fahim, Ayaz Khan Niazi, Salman Ghani, Amin Qasim Dada, Muhammad Zahoor, Zahid Hussain, Hur Rahi Gardezi, Naveed Hussain Zaidi, SM Iqbal, Amir Hussain and Khawaja Akbar Butt.
