An accountability court on Tuesday handed over former president Asif Ali Zardari to the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on physical remand until June 21 for questioning in connection with its investigation into the fake bank accounts case.
A NAB team presented the PPP co-chairman before the court amid tight security to seek his physical remand.
NAB prosecutor Sardar Muzaffar requested the accountability judge to grant 14-day physical remand of the accused saying his custody is required in connection with investigation into the case.
The reports of medical check-ups of the former president carried out after his arrest was also presented in the court.
Strict security measures were put in place inside and outside the Judicial Complex to deter any untoward incident. All roads leading to the court were sealed with heavy contingents of security personnel guarding the route.
