OMNI GROUP’S ANWAR MAJEED ARRESTED FROM OUTSIDE COURT PREMISES ALONG WITH SONS

Mr. Majeed pleaded the court to stop FIA from lodging cases against me.

The bench ordered the FIA to appear before the court on September.

The FIA is investigating 32 people in relation to suspicious transactions of Rs35 billion carried out through fake bank accounts including Asif Ali Zardari and his sister Faryal Talpur, under which Zardari’s close aide and Pakistan Stock Exchange Chairman Hussain Lawai was also arrested last month.

Earlier on Aug.25, 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 till August 27 on the request of FIA.
