Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Co-chairman and former president Asif Ali Zardari’s sister Faryal Talpur has pleaded with the accountability court for the provision of facilities in her prison cell.

According to reports, Talpur, who is currently in the custody of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) in the money laundering case against her and Zardari, has sought facilities including an air-conditioner, television, microwave oven, mosquito killer lamp, torch, iPod and a maid.

The incarcerated Sindh Assembly lawmaker has sought an iPod for ‘listening to the Quran’, the application filed by her legal team said.


The PPP MPA was last week shifted to Adiala Jail from Polyclinic. She was under house arrest since June 14 after the Islamabad High Court (IHC) rejected her bail in connection with a case pertaining to alleged money laundering through fake accounts.

The PPP leader was shifted to the Polyclinic after her condition had deteriorated earlier this month.

Meanwhile, the court has extended both Faryal and Zardari’s judicial remand till September 5.
