ISLAMABAD : The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has obtained another 14-day physical remand of the OGRA scam accused Tauqir Sadiq from the Accountability Court-1 Islamabad for further interrogation. The court on Friday extended remand of Tauqir Sadiq and the court ordered that the accused be produced before the court on August 30. Tauqir Sadiq told the court that he was kept in a small cell where lack of sufficient oxygen was affecting his memory.

A NAB counsel sought the 14-day extension in his remand praying the court that some new evidences had been found against the accused and they were required to record statements of some witnesses and notices had been issued to 19 officials of SSGCL in this regard.

He told the court that Tauqir Sadiq was not cooperating in the investigation while witnesses were also being threatened. The court accepted the NAB plea and granted the 14-day remand.
