Earlier on Thursday, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Chairman Javed Iqbal had signed his arrest warrants and dispatched teams in Karachi and Islamabad to take Miftah Ismail into custody.
Advocate Haider Waheed, who appeared as Ismail’s counsel, said that the case was based in Islamabad and requested protective bail so that the PML-N leader could contact the relevant court.
The SHC also asked Ismail to submit surety bonds of Rs500,000.
On Thursday, former prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi was arrested by a 12-member NAB team in the LNG (liquefied natural gas) import contract case.
