The NAB produced former president Asif Ali Zardari and his sister Faryal Talpure before the court duty judge Tahir Mehmood.

On outset of hearing, Faryal Talpure stated that she wanted to go back to Karachi to attend the Sindh Assembly session and prayed the court to extend her remand till August 16.
