Islamabad: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has arrested PPP leader Faryal Talpur in money laundering  case.

According to Geo News, Faryal, a Member of the Sindh Assembly, was arrested hours after NAB chairman signed arrest warrant for her.

He, however, has declared Faryal Talpur's resident in the capital  as sub-jail and the PPP leader would not be shifted tp NAB headquarters.

The NAB is said to have  called a team of doctors to get medical check-up of the PPP leader done.

The TV channel said  Talpur would be presented before an accountability court on Saturday.

Faryal Talpur was arrested  days after her brother and former president of the country Asif Ali Zardari was taken into custody.

Both the leaders have been arrested after  court  dismissed their bail applications for extension. 

The NAB has informed the Sindh Assembly Speaker Agha Siraj Durrani about the arrest of  Faryal Talpur through a letter, according to Geo News.
