KARACHI: On Saturday a banking court extended the physical remand of Omni Group chairman Anwar Majeed and his son, Abdul Ghani Majeed, who were arrested in connection to a money laundering case.
The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) presented Abdul Ghani Majeed before additional district and sessions judge, south.
Majeed’s counsel informed the court that Abdul Ghani is investigated all night and not allowed to sleep.
“A medical examination should be conducted of my client as he faces the risk of brain hemorrhage,” the counsel said.
Majeed’s counsel further requested the court to send Anwar on a judicial remand instead of a physical one as he is hospitalised.
The court extended Anwar and Abdul Ghani’s physical remand till August 27 on the request of FIA.
