KARACHI - The copy of the pre-arrest bail, granted to Federal Interior Minister Rehman Malik, by the Supreme Court in 1997 was submitted to an accountability court here on Tuesday. The counsel for the federal minister, Khawaja Naveed appeared before Accountability Court (AC) No-4 Judge Riaz Baloch and submitted the copy of his clients bail. In 1997, the federal minister was charged with providing 50 metric tones of Tar, from the National Refinery, to his brother-in-law in 1996, by abusing his authority as the FIA deputy director, causing a massive loss to the national exchequer. The corruption charges were investigated by the Anti-Corruption Establishment and later the case was shifted to the National Accountably Bureau (NAB) in 2004. However, the case was withdrawn after the promulgation of the National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) in 2007. Khawaja Naveed informed the accountability court that his client had already been granted pre-arrest bail in the case, in 1997 by the apex court. Meanwhile, the Judicial Magistrate Malir No-6 remanded the alleged associate of the banned outfit in the Police custody for two days. The suspect Mohammed Umar Khan was produced before the Judicial Magistrate to obtain his custody for further interrogation over his alleged involvement in terrorism at which the court sent him on physical remand in the police custody. The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) arrested the suspect a day before yesterday from the Bin Qasim Town area for his alleged link with Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP). The police also claimed to have recovered one repeater gun and its rounds from him. He was booked in FIR 313/09.
