Fake Bank Accounts: Aslam Masood Produced Before Court

ISLAMABAD: The ‘mastermind’ of fake bank accounts case, Aslam Masood, who was arrested on Feb 8 by the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA), has been produced before the civil judge of the Islamabad court.

According to details, FIA brought the accused to court in an ambulance while the court has approved his seven-day transit remand and ordered to produce him on February 16 in Karachi’s concern court.  

The FIA had to seek the suspect’s remand today for transporting him to Karachi, so that he can be produced before the banking court, hearing the fake bank accounts case involving former president Asif Ali Zardari and his sister Faryal Talpur.

Earlier, Aslam Masood complained of a cardiac pain on which FIA has moved Masood to the Rawalpindi Institute of Cardiology for his medical check-up.  

Masood, Chief Financial Officer (CFO) of Omni Group, was arrested by the Interpol when he was boarding a flight from London to Jeddah in October. Yesterday, he was subsequently extradited to Pakistan from Saudi Arabia.
