SHC bars NAB from arresting Sharjeel Memon.

KARACHI -- The Sindh High Court (SHC) has barred National Accountability Bureau (NAB) from arresting Pakistan People's Party leader Sharjeel Memon in assets and abuse of power cases, media reported on Wednesday.

At the outset of the hearing, the NAB prosecutor said that they have already submitted the details regarding the reference filed against Sharjeel Memon.

'Two references have been filed against him, and two inquiries and two investigations against him separately underway,' the prosecutor said.

The counsel of Sharjeel Memon in his argument before the SHC bench said it seems that NAB is carrying out more hidden inquiries against his client and pleaded with the court to seek details from the NAB in this context.

SHC while seeking the details directed the NAB not to arrest Sharjeel Memon without permission from the court and adjourned the hearing until October 27.
