The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has issued a letter to Deputy Commissioner (DC) Lahore to sell Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Ishaq Dar’s house in Gulberg, estimated to be worth millions of rupees, reports Geo News.

Dar’s wife, Tabassum, had reportedly approached the Islamabad High Court (IHC) against the decision. Her lawyer argued that the house belongs to Tabassum. It was given to her on February 14,1989, and Lahore’s accountability court issued an order without investigating the matter.

However, the high court rejected her plea. Earlier, the bureau had withdrawn Rs500 million from the former finance minister’s bank account and deposited it with the national treasury in a corruption reference against him. He was also declared an absconder in the case.


Dar had earlier expressed his willingness to take his oath to Senate Chairman Sadiq Sanjrani as a member of the Senate “virtually” from the United Kingdom (UK) as he can’t come back to Pakistan due to his illness.

However, Sanjrani declined Dar’s request to be administered oath as a senator either virtually or through the Pakistan High Commission in London, declaring that the Constitution and the rules do not allow him to do so.
