ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad High Court (IHC) Monday adjourned the hearing for a week on a  post-arrest bail plea of Abdul Ghani Majeed, a son of Omni Group’s head, in  fake accounts reference.

A division bench, comprising Acting Chief Justice Aamer Farooq and Justice Miangul Hassan Aurangzeb, conducted hearing on bail petition of Abdul Ghani  Majeed in mega corruption reference, filed by National Accountability Bureau  (NAB).

The NAB prosecutor apprised the bench that his department had filed a  reference to Accountability Court on last Friday against the petitioner and  other accused related to the fake accounts.

At this, the petitioner’s counsel requested the court to grant time for case preparation, which was allowed by the bench.

Meanwhile, the same bench also adjourned hearing on a pre-arrest bail  petition of Amanullah Memon in fake accounts investigation for indefinite  time.

The petitioner had stated that the NAB had served him a call up notice  and he feared of being arrested on appearance before investigation team.

The hearing was adjourned due to absence of petitioner’s counsel.
