Asif Zardari’s Sister, Faryal Talpur arrested by NAB in money laundering case

The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Friday took PPP leader Faryal Talpur into custody over money laundering.

Faryal was arrested hours after NAB chairman signed arrest warrant for her. She was living at her residence in Islamabad’s F-8 and it has now been declared as a sub-jail.

The Zardari House in the federal capital, Islamabad, has been declared as sub-jail and the PPP leaders would not be shifted to NAB headquarters.

Talpur would be presented before an accountability court on Saturday, the TV channel further added.

Her brother Asif Ali Zardari was arrested 2 days before in a money laundering case after the Islamabad High Court had rejected their bail in the case.

The FIR for the case was filed in Karachi. A banking court was hearing it but it was transferred to NAB Islamabad after the Supreme Court handed over the fake accounts case. The investigation is still in the inquiry stage. It pertains to NAB’s claims that a company owned by Zardari and his sister, Faryal Talpur, received Rs30 million of Rs4.4 billion in suspicious transactions carried out through fake accounts.

Their arrests came after an accountability court dismissed their bail applications for extension.
