*LARKANA: Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) declared Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari and his sister Faryal Talpur absconders in a money-laundering scam involving Rs35 billion.*
*Faryal Talpur has obtained pre-arrest bail from the Sindh High Court on Monday.*
Ms Talpur filed a petition in the SHC Larkana circuit bench seeking pre-arrest bail.
The bench approved bail for the PPP leader for six days and directed her to surrender to the court concerned in the case.
Advocate Farooq H Naek, who represented the petitioner, stated that the FIA case is based on malafides and a ploy to keep the PPP leaders away from the electoral race.
On Saturday, the FIA’s State Bank Circle submitted a charge-sheet of the case against Hussain Lawai and other suspects in the relevant court.
Zardari and his sister were among over a dozen suspects declared absconders in the money-laundering scam.
