ISLAMABAD: Former president Asif Ali Zardari Thursday filed a petition in the Accountability  Court (AC) seeking contempt proceedings for non-provision of air-conditioning  facility at jail.

The court issued notices to Adiala Jail Superintendent and sought reply till  Friday.

At the outset of hearing, the petitioner’s counsel Sardar Latif Khosa pleaded  that his client was not given facilities of air-conditioning and refrigerator in jail.

Meanwhile, the same court also allowed Sardar Latif Khosa to meet his  client and former president Asif Ali Zardari who was currently in jail in fake  accounts references.

Duty Judge Shahrukh Arjamand heard the application of legal team of  the former president.
