KARACHI: The Sindh High Court (SHC) on Monday granted interim bail to former chief minister Sindh Syed Qaim Ali Shah, in a case related to alleged illegal appointments.
Fearing arrest in the alleged illegal appointments case after National Accountability Bureau’s (NAB) call-up notice, Shah had approached the Sindh High Court (SHC) for bail before arrest, earlier in the day.
The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has been barred from arresting Qaim Ali Shah.
“Sir I’m a poor man.” Qaim Ali Shah said and pleaded with the court to keep the surety amount low and affordable for him. To this, Justice Iqbal Kalhoro remarked, “You have been the chief minister of Sindh”, Rs200,000 will be ok?
Later, the court approved the interim bail of the PPP leader against a surety bond of Rs100,000.
