Finance Minister Ishaq Dar’s plea to get exemption on medical grounds from hearing of assets beyond means reference was rejected by the accountability court today. 

The court issued orders to confiscate Ishaq Dar’s surety bonds worth five million rupees if he fails to appear in the next hearing, and decided to sustain his bailable arrest warrants.

The minister had requested the court to continue the case by appointing a legal representative for him. A fresh medical report of Dar was submitted in the court by his counsel Ayesha Hamid. The lawyer told that Ishaq Dar underwent angiography and his echocardiography is yet to be done.

NAB has filed reference against Ishaq Dar for holding 'more assets than known sources of income.'
