WEB DESK: A National Accountability Bureau (NAB) court extended Dr Asim Hussain’s remand for another week on Thursday, Aaj News reported.
Dr Asim was presented in court along with two officials of the Sui Southern Gas Company.
Last week the police gave a clean chit to Dr Asim, and he was transferred to NAB from the Rangers custody.
During the hearing last week, the investigation officer SP Altaf Hussain presented his report in the court where he revealed that the allegations against Dr Asim could not be proven. He said that Dr Asim should be released on bail.
Quoting an example from his report the IO said that one of the terrorists Zafar Baloch was brought to the Ziauddin Hospital by a rickshaw driver.
Dr Asim during the hearing told the judge that he was being wrongly framed in the case. “The list of terrorists treated at Ziauddin Hospital which has been produced by the Rangers is fake.”
Earlier, Dr Asim had said that his life was in danger and the Rangers were torturing him in custody to obtain a confession.
Dr Asim who was also serving as chairman for the Higher Education Commission was arrested on August 26.
He is a close friend of former president Asif Ali Zardari. The PPP claims the case against Dr Asim is an example of political victimization of their party.
