An accountability court indicted on Monday former president Asif Ali Zardari, Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader Faryal Talpur and others in money laundering case.

Both Zardari and Talpur appeared before the hearing headed by accountability Judge Azam Khan. The PPP leaders were also provided a copy of the charge sheet.

The court has summoned all National Accountability Bureau (NAB) witnesses on October 13. It has also deferred Zardari’s indictment in the Park Lane and Thatta water supply cases till October 5, local media reported.

In the previous hearing, the accountability court had rejected Zardari's plea seeking to quash money laundering, Park Lane and Thatta water supply project references.

Today, Zardari filed a petition in Islamabad High Court (IHC) to dismiss the money laundering and Park Lane trials on references filed by the NAB. In his petition, the former president said that he is not guilty and should be acquitted.
