Lahore (HRNW) The house of Ishaq Dar’s wife, Tabassum Dar, is not being auctioned off anytime soon as the Islamabad High Court has issued a stay order on its auction.
A two-member bench, comprising Chief Justice Athar Minallah and Justice Lubna Saleem Pervaiz, announced the verdict on Tuesday. It has suspended an accountability court’s November 7, 2019 verdict in which it rejected the plea of Dar’s wife.
The court has issued notice to NAB and asked for a reply by February 13.
Advocate Qazi Misbah appeared on the petitioner’s behalf. He said that Ishaq Dar had gifted the house in Lahore’s Gulberg to his wife on February 14, 1989.
NAB had seized the house and its custody was given to the Punjab government, the lawyer told the court.
