ISLAMABAD: While announcing the verdict of Dr Arsalan Iftikhar case, the Supreme Court of Pakistan (SC) ordered to retreat the case from National Accountability Bureau (NAB) and form a new investigating commission, our sources reported Thursday.

A special bench of the Supreme Court, comprising Justice Jawad S Khwaja and Justice Arif Khilji, passed the judgment.

The bench decided that a separate commission, instead of NAB team, should be formed to probe the case.

Dr Arsalan Iftikhar, son of Chief Justice Iftikhar Hussain, has been accused of receiving between Rs300 and Rs400 million from real estate tycoon Malik Riaz to influence judicial proceedings.

Earlier on Tuesday, the bench after completing the proceedings on Dr Arsalan Iftikhar's review petition had reserved the judgment.

The bench had stopped the joint investigation team (JIT) from investigating Arsalan Iftikhar's case on August 2. Arsalan's counsel Sardar Muhammad Ishaq completed the arguments on Tuesday after which Zahid Bukhari, the counsel for Malik Riaz Hussain, gave counter arguments.
