Rawalpindi - Special Judge Central Mian Khalid Shabir while accepting the application of former federal minister for religious affairs Hamid Saeed Kazmi on Thursday de-froze his bank account in the Haj scam case. The court also issued production orders of former Director General Haj Rao Shakeel Ahmed, the co-accused in the Hajj scam, and put off the case hearing till tomorrow.

Kazmi, in his application, had pleaded that he had an account in the Faisal Bank, Bosan Road, Multan, in which the amount in 2009 was UK pounds 21894 and the account was frozen by the FIA after arresting him in the Haj corruption scandal in 2010.

He apprised the court that the amount was transferred to his account by his brother from London. Hamid Saeed Kazmi, while presenting the record of money transfer, appealed the court to de-freeze his account.

On this, the court directed the authorities concerned to reopen the account. The court also issued production orders of former DG Haj Rao Shakeel.

Meanwhile, the court accepted a plea for hearing filed by FIA seeking Hamid Saeed Kazmi's reinvestigation in the case.

The court also ordered the authorities concerned to bring Kazmi to a dentist for his teeth check-up as per law.
