The court had rejected the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) plea for an extension of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman’s physical remand. The 71-year-old Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf party chief has been incarcerated in the high-security jail in Rawalpindi since September 26 in various cases.

Judge Bashir rejected the National Accountability Bureau’s (NAB) request for extending the former premier’s physical remand in the Al-Qadir Trust corruption case.

His wife Bushra Bibi and his legal team appeared before the court on Monday during the hearing.
