KARACHI: A banking court issued notices to Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) officials over the bail plea filed by the owners of Omni Group's, Anwar Majeed and his son, Abdul Ghani Majeed, in the mega money laundering case.

The petitioners argued that since the FIA could not present evidence before the court, the bails should be granted. The pleas said that FIA's investigations were based on ill will and politically motivated.

The court ordered FIA officials to submit a reply and issued them notices for January 23.

Anwar and Abdul have filed post arrest bail pleas. Anwar is undergoing medical treatment at the National Institute of Cardiovascular Diseases (NICVD), while Abdul is imprisoned at Adiala Jail.
