The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) on Wednesday took former president Asif Zardari's nearby assistant and Omni Group Chairman Anwar Majeed into guardianship outside the Supreme Court, where he and his family showed up today after rehashed nonattendances from hearings of a case relating to money laundering through fake bank accounts. 


Majeed and his family had been summoned to court on Aug 13 for the past becoming aware of the case, yet had not showed up under the watchful eye of the three-judge seat driven by Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar.

The seat was informed that Anwar and Ghani's names were at that point on the restricted travel backlog, after which the court requested that Nimr, Kamal and Zulqernain's names be added to the rundown. 

"In the event that Asif Zardari, Faryal Talpur and (Bahria Town Executive Director) Zain Malik can show up before the FIA, at that point why not the Majeed family," the CJP remarked. 

Equity Nisar stated: "If the court wishes, the Majeed family can be arrested. I don't have any protests to it." 

In this manner, Anwar Majeed was arrested outside the court.

The development of the JIT has been deferred until the point when the court hears the legal advisors' contentions for the situation. 

In the last hearing, CJP Nisar had implied that the JIT would not have delegates from insight organizations to be specific the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) and Military Intelligence (MI), as the Panamagate JIT testing the Sharif family did. 

Equity Nisar had stated: "Perhaps the individuals from the ISI and MI were incorporated into the Panama Papers spills case to zest up (Tarka) the test," expelling the likelihood of consideration of the knowledge organizations authorities in the professional wrongdoing. 

In the present hearing, the best judge denied that the court had required the consideration of the MI and ISI authorities in the Panamagate JIT. 

"We found that Chaudhry Nisar had included them in the JIT," he asserted. 

Omni Group legal counselor Shahid Hamid supplicated that the court unfreeze the organization's accounts, which the court denied. 

"The FIA will continue with the examination as it wants," the CJP said. 

The SC arrange in the Panama Papers judgment issued on April 20, 2017, says:
