ISLAMABAD: Two suspects in the fake accounts money laundering case filed petitions before the Islamabad High Court (IHC) seeking pre-arrest bail.

The suspects, Nadeem Hakim Mandviwalla and Dinshaw Hoshang Anklesaria, filed the petitions to get pre arrest bail.

Expressing apprehension of their arrest, the petitioner requested the court to grant them interim bail till the final adjudication of the pre arrest bail plea. The petitioners also assured the court that they are willing to cooperate with the investigation agency.

The identical petitions state that in compliance with the Supreme Court suo motu notice in fake accounts case a joint investigation team (JIT) was constituted.

The petitioners claimed that they were continuously appearing before the said JIT and extending wholehearted cooperation to the investigation team but they were placed on the Exit Control List (ECL).

As per the petitioners the JIT did not find them guilty in the final report nor were they accused of any wrongdoing or bribing any government officials but still they have been dragged into the fake accounts case.

IHC registrar office has fixed the Mandviwalla’s petition for Wednesday.

The court has already granted pre arrest interim bail to Nimar Majeed, son of Omni Group’s chairman Anwar Majeed in the same case.
