ISLAMABAD:

The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Tuesday extended the stay order against the indictment of former president Asif Ali Zardari in the reference pertaining to Rs8 billion suspicious bank transactions.

A division bench, comprising Chief Justice Athar Minallah and Justice Aamer Farooq, heard the appeal of PPP Co-chairman Zardari against the decision of the accountability court dismissing his acquittal plea in the reference.

The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) submitted its comments against the appeal of former president after the court sought arguments from Zardari's lawyer on December 14.
