Arrest warrants were issued for Shoro by the anti-graft body

The Sindh High Court on Thursday granted protective bail to former Sindh minister for local government Jam Khan Shoro.

Earlier during the day, the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader had approached the SHC for protective bail after the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) issued arrest warrants for alleged involvement in corruption during his tenure.

A two-judge bench of the SHC took up the ex-minister’s plea when his counsel said that the anti-graft body wants to take his client into custody.

“We were issued a call-up notice in June,” he said.

To this, NAB officials said, “Shoro was involved in corruption in the allotment of plots in Karachi Development Authority.”
